Moscow awaits Russian hostages released in Nigeria

Six Russian hostages freed in Nigeria earlier this week are due to fly back to Moscow shortly. The four men and two women were held captive for more than two months.

Reports say they are all in good health.

Their relatives are already in Moscow to meet them when they arrive.

Five employees of Russian aluminum company Rusal and a relative of one of workers were handed over in the city of Port Harcourt in the South-East of Nigeria.

So far, nobody has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping and officials say no ransom was paid.
