Abductors release 4 Banro employees in Democratic Republic of Congo

Abductors have released four Banro Corp. employees that were kidnapped from the Namoya gold mine in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the company said May 28.

In late February, armed men had taken away five workers, including a Tanzanian, a French national and three Congolese from the mine.

Citing the Maniema Provincial Interior Minister Bonaventure in Congo, Saleh Zakuani, the Associated Press reported that the release came after several days of negotiations with the abductors.

They had demanded C$1 million from Banro, while criticizing the company for not giving access or jobs to young miners who reportedly worked on the mine site before the Canadian miner took over.

The company resumed operations at the mine May 22.
