Yemeni troops freed an Italian U.N. staffer and his driver on Tuesday just hours after their abduction from a diplomatic district of Sanaa, the interior ministry said.

The kidnappers were stopped at a checkpoint on the outskirts and the hostages were freed, a ministry official told Agence France Presse.

The U.N. staffer and his chauffeur were said to be "in good health."

The two had initially been identified as a Western diplomat and a female companion.
