Somali official: German citizen rescued

MOGADISHU, Somalia - A local governor says Somali forces have freed a German man and his Somali wife two days after they were kidnapped.

Muse Gelle Yusuf, governor of the northern port of Bosasso, says the couple are in police custody after being freed Monday.

Foreigners, journalists and humanitarian workers are frequently abducted for ransoms in Somalia.

Somalia has not had an effective central government since 1991, leaving the country in the grip of violence and anarchy.
