Two Germans kidnapped in Nigeria nearly a week ago have been freed, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle announced Saturday.

The men, aged 45 and 55, were abducted in southeastern Nigeria on Sunday last week after swimming in the Imo River.

They "have been freed" and are safe and sound, the minister said in a statement. "They are well considering the circumstances," he said.
