The Norwegian woman and Israeli national have been released from captivity some four days after being taken hostage.



“I’m extremely relieved and have been treated extremely well,” 31-year-old Ingvild Selvik Ask said to VG, relating that her kidnappers did not wish to harm her and she is okay.

Ms Ask and other hostage Amir Hassan, 34, were set free at approximately 2am, Tuesday morning.

They apologised and said it was a necessary tool for them to try to obtain the release of two brothers who were imprisoned,” she added, telling former CNN journalist Mohamed Fadel Fahmy she received food and water.

Ms Ask then travelled to the Norwegian embassy in Cairo, now scheduled to return to Norway. Mr Hassan is to travel back to Israel.

Journalist Mohamed Fadel Fahmy tweeted on his Twitter account that the kidnappers have not been caught and no ransom has been paid.
