Kim Sue Endicott

Kim Endicott and her local driver were abducted last Tuesday in a wild park.

An American woman and her driver, kidnapped in Uganda's Queen Elizabeth National Park, have been rescued, Ugandan police said on Sunday.

The police force later confirmed the rescue on social media as well, writing that the pair were "in good health and in the safe hands of the joint security team".

Their kidnappers had demanded a US$500,000 ransom for their release, but it was not known if any money was paid or if the abductors had been arrested.

The pair were hauled from their safari vehicle by four gunmen around dusk on Tuesday as they drove through the Queen Elizabeth National Park.

The other two tourists - reportedly an elderly couple - were rescued soon afterwards. Inset is the tour guide Jean Paul.

"Please remember that any payment to a terrorist or a terrorist regime gives money so that they can seize more of our people", Pompeo said.

Police had said they would not offer the money.

Uganda recorded a surge in kidnapping cases previous year, prompting street protests by activists who said security agencies weren't doing enough to protect residents.

Endicott and her guide were handed over in a negotiation, ABC News reported.

Kimberly Endicott, 56, of Costa Mesa, California, and Jean-Paul Mirenge Remezo were freed from their captors with the help of the Uganda Police Force and sister security agencies, the Government of Uganda wrote in a statement shared on Twitter. It borders the famous Virunga national park, the oldest in Africa.
