Sudan: Army frees some abducted Chinese workers
Khartoum: Sudanese officials say that 14 Chinese road workers have been freed by Sudan`s military, two days after they were reportedly abducted by militants in a remote region in the country`s south. The Chinese embassy said that a total of 29 had gone missing.
State-run Radio Omdurman on Monday quoted South Kordofan Governor Ahmed Mohamed Haroun as saying that Sudanese forces "liberated" the workers, who were in good health.
The report, which is also carried by Sudan`s SUNA news agency, says that the Army is searching for the remaining missing workers.
A Chinese embassy spokesman said on Sunday that the northern branch of the Sudan People`s Liberation Movement, a guerrilla force which has fought for decades against Khartoum regimes, had announced that it carried out the abductions.
