The four French tourists kidnapped by Yemeni tribesmen have been freed, the Yemeni official news agency reported Monday. The SABA news agency did not provide additional details on the release of the four men, captured more than two weeks ago in Shabwa province, southeast of the capital San'a. Awad Ibnawazeer, a lawmaker mediating to secure the hostages' freedom, told The Associated Press they had been released into his care. "After hard and tiring negotiations throughout the night, an agreement was reached to free the hostages," Ibnawazeer said.
