Guerrillas free Skanska workers
The Skanska workers kidnapped in Peru have now been freed.
The guerrilla group Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) let the 36 captives go in the early hours of the morning, Peru time. Most of the 36 work for Skanska, with the rest employed by a peruvian company. They were working on the Camisea gas project, in central Peru.
Yesterday the Peru government warned that there would be no speedy resolution to the kidnapping, since it "would not negotiate with terrorists". The guerrillas had asked for a ransom of US$10 million.
