Swiss teacher Sylvia Abrahat, who was kidnapped in Yemen, arrives at Doha International Airport in Doha after she was freed on February 28. Abrahat was freed on Wednesday after she was held for almost a year since her abduction by tribesmen in Hodeidah province in western Yemen in April 2012. Swiss Ambassador in Qatar Martin Aeschbacher thanked Qatar for mediating in the case as he received Abrahat at the airport. There are no further details on her release. Reuters/Mohammed Dabbous
