"The aid workers went missing while on a mission to provide humanitarian aid to the residents of Yei."


A South Sudan armed group has set free 10 aid workers who went missing last week in River Yei State. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) confirmed on Monday that the 10 had been airlifted to Juba.
 
ICRC said in a short statement that it welcomed the gesture and urged the South Sudan parties to stop aggression against humanitarian workers.
 
"We are pleased that these 10 aid workers can now return to Juba to their families. "We want to remind all parties to the conflict that aid workers are never a target," ICRC head of delegation Francos Stamm, said.
