  • Description

    Two West Germans Kidnapped by guerrillas and held for four day in the inhospitable Bolivian jungle last week, are now back with their families, unharmed by the ordeal.

    The men, Eugen Schulhauser and Gunter Lerch, both mining technicians employed by a U.S. - owned gold mining company, were set free on Thursday (July 23) by the National Liberation Army guerrilla organisation.

    Their release followed the freeing of 10 political prisoners by the Bolivian government - a ransom that had been demanded by the guerrillas in return for the West Germans' lives.

    The 10 political prisoners were later flown out of the country.

    Schulhauser and Lerch have since been questioned by Bolivian army intelligence officers in an attempt to pin down the identity of the guarrilla leader.
