2 Canadian women abducted in Ghana have been rescued

Authorities say two Canadian women who were abducted earlier this month in Ghana have been rescued. Ghana s information ministry says the rescue operation was completed early Wednesday in the south-central Ashanti region. No other details are immediately available. The ministry has sought to assure travellers that the West African nation remains safe despite a recent uptick in kidnappings for ransom. The country has been considered one of the safest in the region for foreign travellers. This was the second time in less than a month that foreigners were targeted in the city of Kumasi. An Indian national earlier was abducted and rescued. Ghana s president has vowed to crack down on kidnappers amid fears the abductions could harm tourism.
