CNN / Reuters Kidnapped workers freed in Peru: "Toledo said the hostages were freed without paying the kidnappers -- who were demanding $1 million, weapons and high-technology communications gear from Techint. But released hostage Julio Aguilar said he and others were freed after 'it appeared that the company met their demands.' Aguilar told RPP radio that 15 to 20 armed people, including a number of women, entered the camp 'peacefully' in the early hours of Monday. Among the hostages were six Colombians and one Chilean." More details -- some contradictory -- about the hostage-taking incident.
