Freed Jail Guards

Communist insurgents in the Philippines freed four jail guards who they took hostage two months ago, the rebels and officials said Saturday, helping ease tensions in peace talks with the government.
The four guards, seized by New People’s Army guerrillas on July 21, were turned over to the International Committee of the Red Cross in the isolated town of Magpet on the southern island of Mindanao, an NPA spokeswoman said.
The four were released for ‘humanitarian reasons’ and were all healthy, NPA spokeswoman Rubi del Mundo said in a statement.
