Private Ship Security Team held in Eritrea freed

In a recent post I noted the plight of some private security force team members that were arrested and held in Eritrea (see A Not-So-Fine Mess: Anti-Pirate Security Guards Imprisoned in Eritrea).

These men have now been released, though as noted in the article British men held in Eritrea freed, there are a whole lot of unanswered questions about this episode:
Four British men held on spying and terrorism charges in the Horn of Africa state of Eritrea have been freed after five months in captivity.

The two ex-Marine guards and two civilian crew members, working for an anti-piracy security firm, were expected to land at Heathrow airport late tonight.
