Police in the Philippines rescued a kidnapped Red Cross worker from his al-Qaida-linked captors Saturday, officials said, but there was no immediate word on the fate on the last remaining hostage. Andreas Notter, 38, of Switzerland was rescued on southern Jolo island early Saturday, Press Secretary Cerge Remonde said, citing "verified reports." "He was rescued by the police and police auxiliary," Sulu provincial police chief Julasirim Kasim told The Associated Press by cell phone from Jolo. Notter was immediately brought to the residence of Sulu provincial Gov. Sakur Tan where he was undergoing a medical check up, Kasim said.
