President Díaz-Canel assures that Cuba continues efforts to return the kidnapped doctors
Havana, April 12 (RHC) – Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel reported today that his country is continuing its efforts for the safe return of the two doctors kidnapped in Kenya four years ago.
“We persevere in our battle for the safe return to the homeland of doctors Assel Herrera Correa and Landy Rodríguez Hernández. Four years after their kidnapping, we continue valiant efforts without giving up to have them among us, together with their families and their people," the president wrote on his Twitter account.
The two specialists from the Caribbean nation were kidnapped in the Kenyan northeastern city of Mandera, on the border with Somalia and the target of attacks by the Somali jihadist group Al Shabab.
Since then, the Cuban authorities have reported efforts for the return of the doctors, as well as contacts with their relatives. The Kenyan government also reported efforts for the same purpose. (Source: Prensa Latina)
