Four aid workers taken in Kenya rescued by militia

NAIROBI, Kenya--Four aid workers kidnapped at gunpoint from Kenya's largest refugee camp arrived back in Kenya's capital aboard a military helicopter on Monday after a pro-government Somali militia group rescued the four inside Somalia.

The four workers from the Norwegian Refugee Council smiled and waved after landing in Nairobi.

Abdinasir Serar, a representative with the Ras Kamboni militia in Somalia, said his group heard of Friday's kidnapping in Kenya's Dadaab refugee camp and pursued the kidnappers. Ras Kamboni fighters caught up with the kidnappers Monday morning about 60 kilometers (35 miles) inside Somalia.
