A U.S. woman and her safari guide were freed Sunday after being kidnapped at gunpoint at a national park in Uganda five days ago, the local police said in a statement.

Ugandan police said on Sunday they had rescued an American woman and her driver who were kidnapped by gunmen in a national park.

Four men had held them up at gunpoint and then "grabbed two out of four. before disappearing with them", police said.

Police had said the kidnappers used Endicott's mobile telephone to demand a ransom of $500,000 (445,000 euros) for the release of the pair.

A day after the incident, the abductors contacted the rescued tourists and demanded a ransom of United States dollars 500,000 (Shs 1.8bn).

Kimberly Sue Endicott was travelling in a auto on Tuesday on an evening game drive with Remezo and two other tourists in the national park when four men held them at gunpoint.
