Good news this week concerning the kidnapped Spanish aid workers.


The Spanish government said two Spanish aid workers kidnapped by Al Qaeda's north African wing in November were freed on Monday and were safe and well.

Spain says two al Qaeda hostages freed Albert Vilalta and Roque Pascual were seized on November 29, 2009 from a convoy run by a Barcelona-based humanitarian aid organisation. A third Spaniard kidnapped at the same time, Alicia Gamez, was released last March.
