Hostages freed by Somalis reach Kenya
Saturday 23 September 1995
Nairobi - Fourteen foreigners held hostage in Somalia for six days have been released. Eight arrived in the Kenyan capital yesterday. The 14 men released on Thursday, all but one of them members of foreign aid organisations, were kidnapped by members of the warlord Mohamed Farah Aideed's militia in Baidoa in central Somalia on Sunday. The 14th is an Australian journalist. The eight, who landed in a United Nations plane, said they had been well treated at the hands of their captors. The remaining six were expected later in the evening. AFP
