11 Dec 1996 description

A 38 day nightmare is over for an American pilot and two other Red Cross workers who were taken hostage in the Central African nation of Sudan. Congressman Richardson (D-NM), who has just returned from the war-torn region, successfully negotiated their release with Sudanese rebel leaders. The price: five tons of rice, four Jeeps, nine radios, and a Red Cross health survey of the disease-ridden guerrilla camp.
