CWN Editor's Note: Two Catholic priests who were kidnapped in southern Nigeria last week have been released. Fathers Joseph Nweke and Felix Efobi were seized on December 6. Their captors demanded bail, but authorities of the Awka diocese say that no payment was made to the captors before the priests were released unharmed. Kidnappings of priests have plagued the region, becoming more common this year.
