US confirms release of two US citizens in Yemen

The United States on Sunday confirmed the release of two Americans who had been held hostage by Shiite Huthi rebels in Yemen for months, and said they had arrived in Oman.

National Security Council spokesman Ned Price said Washington was “deeply appreciative” of those who helped obtain the release of the two citizens, who were not identified in the statement. He specifically thanked the government of Oman, and Sultan Qaboos.
