Carl Heornecke, the German Student who was kidnapped on May 26 is to leave for Germany today, Monday 18 June after he was released last Wednesday.

Release of the kidnapped came after confrontations took place claiming the lives of two persons: a soldier and a tribesman. A security source stated that security bodies would track down the abductors and submit them to court.
Carl came back to Sana’a and met with his father who will also be leaving with him. His sister has already left for Singapore.
