Russians find way to freedom

February 20, 2009|Times Wire Reports

Two Russian oil workers kidnapped two months ago escaped their captors and were picked up by Nigeria's military after a harrowing five-day ordeal, an army spokesman said.

Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said the two men were malnourished but unharmed.

Hundreds of people have been seized and ransomed in the southern oil region.
