Four Hostages Released

4 April 2007

Four foreign hostages abducted in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria have been unexpectedly released, according to BBC News. The British oil worker, Dutch security manager, and two Lebanese construction workers were the only four being held in the region, though Chinese hostages kidnapped from the southeast are still being held.

Jonathan Goodluck, the running mate to the ruling party’s presidential candidate, is running on the slogan “End to hostage taking.”
