US tourist kidnappers arrested

Suspected kidnappers of US Tourist Kimbley Sue Endicott have been arrested. Endicott and a Ugandan tour guide Jean Paul Mirenge were kidnapped by four gunmen, who hijacked their safari vehicle from Queen Elizabeth National Park on April 4.

The gunmen had demanded a ransom of USD 500,000 using their victims’ cell phones.

Sources say that kidnappers received a negotiated sum of USD 30,000 (about 100 million Shillings) out of USD 500,000 (1.8b) they had earlier demanded to free Endicott and Mirenge.
