Abducted Tajik doctor freed in Yemen: Embassy

 A female doctor from Tajikistan kidnapped three months ago in violence-plagued Yemen was freed on Tuesday, her country`s embassy in Saudi Arabia said.



Riyadh: A female doctor from Tajikistan kidnapped three months ago in violence-plagued Yemen was freed on Tuesday, her country`s embassy in Saudi Arabia said.

Gul Rukhsor, in her mid-30s, will return to Tajikistan, said a diplomat at the mission who did not want to be named.

"She`s OK," he added.

The woman had been working at a hospital in Marib in eastern Yemen.

The diplomat said he did not know who abducted her and no ransom was paid.

Yemen`s official news agency Saba said tribes kidnapped the doctor on October 29.

She was freed following mediation, it said, citing the interior ministry.

Yemen is riven by tribal divisions.

Marib is outside the control of the Huthi Shiite militia who on Friday announced it had dissolved parliament and created a "presidential council" in a move critics denounced as a coup.
