Los Angeles: Militants Release 4 Foreign Oil Workers

From Times Wire Reports
Four foreign oil workers held hostage by Nigerian militants were released and were well, a government spokesman said.
The hostages — an American, Briton, Bulgarian and Honduran — were abducted Jan. 11 from an offshore oilfield in the Niger Delta operated by Royal Dutch Shell.
Militants have crippled a tenth of Nigeria's oil production in six weeks of violence. They have demanded more local control over the delta's oil wealth, compensation for pollution to villages and the release of two ethnic Ijaw leaders.
