Oil militants in the Niger Delta region have freed five foreign hostages they seized last month off the coast of the country. The freed hostages are two Filipinos, two Russians, and a Georgian national. The five of them were taken by the militants at the end of January. Initially authorities believed the perpetrators were separatists, but those claims were denied. It’s not clear at this stage whether a ransom was paid for their release.
