Two aid workers held hostage in Darfur, one French and one Canadian, were freed Thursday after three weeks in captivity, France's foreign minister said. The two women, sent to Darfur by non-governmental group International Medical Aid were in good health, Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said. They were brought to the Sudanese capital, Khartoum. The two women, Stephanie Jodoin, of Canada, and Claire Dubois, of France, were seized April 4 in southwest Darfur and released Wednesday, International Medical Aid said in a statement. Kouchner expressed thanks Thursday to those who helped free the workers. Neither he nor the aid group would elaborate on the release.
