Kidnappers from Al-Qaeda in Yemen released Friday a South African woman tourist who was taken hostage in May along with her husband, who temporarily remains captive, a mediator said.

"We have succeeded in securing the release of the wife. The husband will be set free in the next few days," said Anas al-Hamati, adding that the "kidnappers were from Al-Qaeda."
