PRAGUE – The Czech government says two Czech tourists who were abducted by gunmen two years ago as they were traveling on a bus through southwestern Pakistan have been released.
Government spokesman Martin Ayer says the two women arrived in the Czech Republic Saturday morning. Ayer says a Turkish humanitarian organization helped negotiate their release.
He didn't immediately give further details.
The women — Hana Humpalova and Antonie Chrastecka — were on the road from Iran to Quetta, the capital of Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province, when they were seized in March 2013.
