A member of staff from the joint United Nations-African Union peacekeeping operation in Darfur (UNAMID), has been released by Sudanese authorities after almost three months in captivity.

Idriss Abdelrahman was released Wednesday in the South Darfur state capital of Nyala.

Prosecutors told UNAMID that the charges against him had been dropped because of a lack of evidence.

Another staff member, Hawa Mohamed, was released last week, two months after she was arrested at a camp for internally displaced persons in North Darfur.
