On January 26, 2005, it was reported that on December 16, three Christian Aid Workers were abducted in Darfur. The Adventist Development and Relief Agency International (ADRA) said thatthree of its Sudanese workers had been kidnapped at gunpoint. They were in rebel held land of Labado, South Darfur, where they were drilling for wells. The link I have been given does not allow me entrance to the news. It is for the Sudan Tribune. If you have better access than I, please e-mail the whole story. I know the rebels have fled many of their so-called held land.
