  • Description

    In Rhodesia four white civilians who were abducted last year have been released. The men -- two Britons, a Rhodesian and a South African -- were held in Mozambique before being handed to representatives of the human rights organisation, Amnesty International, on February the 2nd.

    SYNOPSIS: Two of the men, a 17-year-old Rhodesian and a British Major, arrived in Johannesburg, where they were met by their families and friends. One man described their release by Mr Robert Mugabe's ZANU guerrillas, as a "gigantic publicity stunt". Mr John Kennerley and Major Thomas Wigglesworth were delighted to be free.

    It was reported that two whites were still being detained in Mozambique by guerrillas.
