Ugandan security forces have successfully rescued a kidnapped American tourist, Kimberley Sue Endecott, 35, and her Ugandan driver, Jean Paul, after they were snatched by gunmen last week.
The two were found at Ishasha in western Uganda near its border with the Democratic Republic of Congo.
They were kidnapped inside the famous Queen Elizabeth national park, close to the border with the DRC. Authorities had maintained that the kidnappers were within the borders of Uganda.
The kidnappers who reports say were four in number had demanded $500,000 as ransom for their release, the Ugandan Tourism Board and police confirmed.
