DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Oman says it helped negotiate the release of an Indonesian and a Malaysian held in Yemen amid the war in the Arab world's poorest nation.
The state-run Oman News Agency said Monday it reached an agreement "with the relevant authorities in Sanaa," Yemen's rebel-held capital, for the return of the two captives.
It said they arrived in Oman on Monday.
The brief statement did not identify those freed.
Oman, a sultanate on the eastern edge of the Arabian Peninsula, did not join a Saudi-led military campaign targeting Yemen's Houthi rebels.
Since the war, Oman has been crucial in negotiating the release of prisoners held in Yemen by the Houthis.
The Saudi-led coalition launched its war in Yemen in March 2015.
