NAIROBI, Kenya, May 21 – The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has ruled out ransom negotiations with Al Shabaab militants in Somalia to secure the release of two foreign doctors abducted from Mandera in April.

Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma however said an operation was ongoing to rescue the two Cuban doctors.

She was responding to reports that the Somali-based militant group had demanded for a $1.5 million ransom for the release of the doctors who were attached to Mandera County Referral Hospital.

The doctors – a general practitioner and a surgeon – were abducted on April 12 while commuting to work.
