Ukraine: 4 of 8 Kidnapped Observers Released

Rebels in southeast Ukraine have released four of eight international observers captured over a month ago.

Four observers from Switzerland, Turkey, Estonia and Denmark, part of the 100-strong mission, were brought by heavily armed rebels to a hotel in downtown Donetsk, where they were handed over to their colleagues on Thursday night. Another four remain in rebel captivity in the Luhansk region.
