Good News From Kabul
KABUL, Afghanistan - Afghan police freed a female German hostage from a Kabul neighborhood and arrested a group of kidnappers early Monday, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.The early news doesn't say much about how the woman, identified as Christina Meier, was freed, or who was behind the kidnapping, although it appears not to have been the Taliban.
The 31-year-old aid worker was freed during a raid in the western part of the capital not far from the restaurant where she was seized Saturday while dining with her husband, Zemary Bashari said. The woman's husband was not abducted.
"A group of kidnappers were arrested," Bashari said. (more)
