Three medical aid workers and a Sudanese guard kidnapped in Darfur have been freed by captors who were protesting the international arrest warrant for the country’s president. The Medcins Sans Frontieres (MSF/Doctors without Borders) workers were seized from their base after the International Court issued an arrest warrant for President Omar Hassan al-Bashir on war crime charges.  The kidnappers call themselves the Eagles of Bashir according to North Darfur governor Osman Yusuf Kibir.
