Abducted foreigners freed

Somali kidnappers have freed two foreign journalists abducted last November in the northern port of Bosasso.

Briton Colin Freeman, a correspondent for the Sunday Telegraph, and Spanish freelance photographer Jose Cendon were seized in November as they left a hotel in the town.

Somalia is one of the most hazardous countries in the world for reporters.

Two freelance journalists, an Australian and a Canadian, were seized in the capital Mogadishu in August and are still held.
