A British oil worker kidnapped in Indonesia has been released, the Foreign Office has said.
Engineer Malcolm Primrose, 61, was ambushed by an armed gang as he travelled home from a drilling site in the Aceh region on Tuesday, local reports said.
The Foreign Office said this morning that the 61-year-old is "safe but tired" after his release, which followed a police search of the local area with the assistance of soldiers.
"We are delighted to confirm that Malcolm Primrose has been released," a spokesman said.
"Our officials are with Mr Primrose and providing consular assistance. He is safe but tired."
He added that he is not aware of any arrests at this stage.
