CWN Editor's Note: Guerrillas in Cameroon have released nine hostages who had been abducted from a Catholic church on September 16.

The Catholic bishops’ conference of Cameroon had refused to pay ransom to the kidnappers—who have not yet been identified—“so as not to create dangerous precedents.” However, the Fides news service offered the ambiguous report that ransom “is said not to have been officially paid.”
