Foreign Teachers Released, Were "Treated Well"

The Guardian reported a few minutes ago that the two foreign teachers abducted earlier today were released shortly after their kidnappers, the PLFP (a small militant faction) faxed a release to the Associated Press claiming responsibility and demanding the release of their leader from prison. Below is the URL of the entire story.

The story gave no details on the teachers' condition. However, the PNA condemned the abduction and their school in Gaza City demanded their release, stating the Dutch headmaster and his Australian deputy were serving in a srictly educational capacity. The Palesinian Seurity Services had mounted a search for the kidnapped teachers, but it would seem from the wording of the Guardian story that their abductors released them.

UPDATE: The URL below is a transcript of an Australian interview with the Australian deputy headmaster of the American International School after his release. He says his captors seemed dismayed when they realized they had NOT kidnapped Americans, but said he and the school's headmaster had been treated well and were never threatened with harm.

Joe,

I'm sure Mohammed will appreciate that. We were all so hoping the doctors in Cairo could help him, but apparently, the injury is very severe.

Nobody is giving up however--they will do all they can to arange treatment in Europe.
