AN Iraqi group had freed a Sudanese man it had been holding hostage since late October, the Sudanese foreign ministry said today.
Nourredin Zaqaria, a translator in Baghdad for the American company Tyson, telephoned his family immediately following his release to say he was safe and well, the official Al-Anbaa newspaper reported today.
A video broadcast by Al-Arabiya television on October 30 showed a man who identified himself as Mr Zaqaria, from Khartoum, being held by armed men claiming to belong to the Thawrat al-Ishrin (Revolution of the 1920s) Brigade.
