Al-Qaida in North Africa Frees Swiss Hostage


Authorities in Mali say al-Qaida's North Africa branch has freed a Swiss hostage abducted in January.

Officials announced the release Sunday, but gave no further details.

Werner Greiner was abducted in late January with three other Westerners near the Mali-Niger border.

The al-Qaida group earlier freed two of the women in the group, but killed British national Edwin Dyer.


Some information for this report was provided by AFP and Reuters.
