Teresa Borcz Khalifa is “safe and sound,” Prime Minister Marek Belka told reporters in Warsaw Saturday.
”Officials of different services took part in her release in co- operation with institutions from many countries,” Marek said.
Khalifa has lived in Iraq for 30 years, is married to an Iraqi and holds both Polish and Iraqi citizenship. She was kidnapped on Oct. 27 in Baghdad by a group that demanded Poland withdraw its troops from Iraq. Al-Jazeera television aired two videos showing Khalifa in captivity.
