NIGER-UNREST-KIDNAP-AID

Five African aid workers who were abducted in Niger in mid-October and were recently freed wait on November 3, 2012 to meet with Niger president at the presidential palace in Niamey. The five African aid workers were freed alive, while a sixth died after being shot by the Al-Qaeda-linked kidnappers, officials said the workers and their employers said on November 3. One of the hostages said the kidnapping was carried out by the armed Islamist group Movement for Oneness and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), one of the Al-Qaeda-backed groups that have seized control of the north in neighbouring Mali.
