Kidnapped Australian Released in Philippines After 15 Months

March 23 (Bloomberg) -- Warren Rodwell, who was kidnapped in the Philippines in December 2011, was released from captivity overnight in the nation’s southern island of Mindanao, the Australian government said.

Rodwell, an Australian citizen, is with Philippine authorities and Australian diplomatic staff and will be moved to a safe location, Foreign Minister Bob Carr said in an e-mailed statement today.

He had been held by the Abu Sayyaf group after being seized from his home in Mindanao, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported on its website.
