It must be the season for hostage releases by al-Qaeda affiliates or something...

The BBC is reporting that Werner Greiner has been released. He was the last-held of six hostages taken by al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb in Niger on January 22nd of this year.

One of the hostages then taken, Edwin Dyer, was said to have been killed by AQIM in May. The other four have previously been released.
