Five UN Personnel Kidnapped in Yemen in 2022 Released

According to the United Nations, five of their Department of Safety and Security Personnel who were kidnapped in 2022 in Yemen have been released. The official statement reads below:

According to Russell Geekie, a spokesman for the top U.N., the five United Nations staff were abducted in southern Yemen while returning to Aden after a field mission five years ago.

This release did not include Akam Sofyol Anam who was kidnapped by Al-Qaeda more than six years ago in Yemen who appeared in a late-2022 captor video. It is unclear if the two abductions were related in terms of the captors.
