ALGIERS - Seven Algerian diplomats abducted by Islamist rebels in northern Mali in April have been freed, an Algerian security source said on Friday, a move that could ease tension along the volatile border.

"They are all safe and should be back home very soon," the source said, adding that the seven consisted of a consul and six consular staff who were based in Mali.

Security officials in Algeria do not normally speak on the record and there was no immediate confirmation from the Algerian government.
