Following our article Libya Crisis – Three Dutch soldiers and one Lynx captured, we can now advise that the three members of the Dutch military have been released and are already in the Greek capital Athens en route home. Defense Minister Hans Hillen: "We are very pleased. Our people are safe, what a wonderful news." Immediately after the release, their families were informed.
"We congratulate our three sailors warmly on their return and of course their close family, friends and colleagues. Thanks to all employees of Defence, but also our colleagues of Foreign Affairs for their tireless efforts to our colleagues free. They have a nice job done. There they are proud", he added.
There is no word on the current location or the repatriation prospects of the Lynx helicopter.
