Kidnapped Kenyan pilots reunite with family

Addis Ababa, February 20, 2018 (FBC) - Two Kenyan pilots who were held by a rebel group in South Sudan for over a month have now returned home.

They landed in Nairobi a short while ago where they were met by family members.

Rebels seized the pair early last month when their plane crashed in the Upper Nile region, reportedly killing a woman and some livestock.

The two pilots were released yesterday following intense negotiations involving South Sudanese government officials and their Kenyan counterparts.
