A Dutch couple were heading home from Yemen Wednesday after their six-month kidnap ordeal came to an end, a Dutch diplomatic source said.
The couple, said to be in good health, boarded a plane before dawn heading to Amsterdam via Cairo, the diplomat said.
No details have been revealed on the identity of the abductors or how the pair's release, announced Tuesday, was secured.
"Dutch journalist Judith Spiegel and her partner Boudewijn Berendsen, abducted since June 8, have been freed," a security official said Tuesday, quoted by Yemen's state news agency Saba.
