Sudan: Aid workers released in Darfur

Two kidnapped aid workers from the Irish agency GOAL were released on Sunday in Darfur after spending more than 100 days in captivity, writes IrishTimes. Hilda Kawuki and Sharon Commins are “unharmed and healthy,” said GOAL. The release comes after Ireland’s Foreign Minister, Micheal Martin, met top Sudanese officials last month to pressure the government over the release of Commins. President Omar al-Bashir ordered the expulsion of aid groups earlier this year after he was indicted by the International Criminal Court on charges of war crimes.
