WASHINGTON: The White House says two Americans held in Yemen have been released and are in Oman.

A statement from the National Security Council doesn't identify the Americans.

But a spokesman for a New Orleans-based logistics company confirms that employee Scott Darden was freed. The company, Transoceanic Development, says Darden was helping to deliver aid throughout the region for Transoceanic and relief organizations among its clients.

The White House is thanking the government of Oman for helping secure the release of the detainees.
