PARIS - A French woman who was abducted in Yemen in February has been freed, the French president's office said in a statement, adding that she would come back to France in the coming hours.

"Our compatriot Isabelle Prime has been freed tonight," the statement said, without providing any details on her liberation.

Prime and her Yemeni translator Shereen Makawi were abducted by gunmen in the capital Sanaa in February while the pair were on their way to work. Yemeni tribal sources said in March that Prime would be released, but only Makawi was freed at the time.
