The army in Mali says three Chinese nationals who were kidnapped in July have ‘escaped their captors and been rescued’ by the security forces.
Armed men seized the three from a construction site in the south of the country.
Two Mauritanians abducted at the same time were freed 10 days later.
In a statement, the army said “the hostages had managed to break free on Sunday and were located the following day in a joint operation involving ground and air forces.
The men are said to be in reasonable health
