Mr. David Mitchell, his wife and 14-year-old son were released yesterday, Sunday May 3rd, as a result of intense negotiations by tribal elders, government officials and other influential people. The family was kidnaped on Friday April 17th by men from the Bani Dhabyan tribe at Maabar while they were on their way from Aden to Sanaa.
The Mitchells, though traumatized, have not been harmed.
