Relief workers abducted in Ethiopia to be freed

Ten foreign relief workers who were abducted last month by guerrillas in Ethiopia will be freed. One of the 10 is an American priest. A spokesman for their captors, the Tigray People's Liberation Front, said the workers will arrive in Khartoum Sunday, where they will be handed over to their respective embassies.

The aid workers were in the Ethiopian town of Korem when the guerrillas, fighting for independence for Ethiopia's northeastern province of Tigray, seized the town briefly. The workers were in Ethiopia to help fight the country's worst drought in almost a decade.
