Two Spanish nuns have been released unharmed after being kidnapped and held for one week by Hutu militiamen, the Spanish Foreign Ministry in Madrid confirmed. Sagrario Larralde, 62, and Rosa Munoz, 33, were in good condition at the Carmelite mission in Goma, Congo, after being forced to walk 50 miles through the jungle by their captors. The two worked at a hospital in the Rwandan town of Kivumu and were apparently kidnapped by Hutu militiamen to care for their sick and wounded.
