Swiss woman abducted in Sudan's Darfur region freed - North Darfur official

KHARTOUM: Sudanese authorities have freed a Swiss humanitarian worker who was abducted in Darfur last month, the deputy governor of North Darfur, Mohamed Barima, told Reuters on Wednesday.

Sudanese authorities previously said they believed a criminal gang had abducted the Swiss woman outside her home near the city of al-Fashir.

Barima said the woman was in good health and being held at a security headquarters.
