Four Kidnapped Aid Workers Rescued from Somalia

Four aid workers from the Norwegian Refugee Council whom were kidnapped at gunpoint from Kenya's largest refugee camp arrived back in Kenya's capital Monday after a pro-government Somali militia group rescued them inside Somalia. "We are happy. We are back. We are alive and we are happy this has ended," said Qurat-Ul-Ain Sadazi, one of the four workers. A representative with the Ras Kamboni militia in Somalia said his group heard of Friday's kidnapping in Kenya's Dadaab refugee camp and pursued the kidnappers.

Ras Kamboni's leader, Ahmed Madobe, said his men killed one of the kidnappers but that the other three escaped. The rescue happened in the village of Alu Gulay.
