BOSASSO, Somalia (Reuters) - Somali kidnappers have freed two journalists, British correspondent Colin Freeman and Spanish photographer Jose Cendon, a government official said on Sunday.

"The two European journalists were freed and they are now in a hotel in Bosasso, Puntland," said Muse Gelle Yusuf, a regional governor of Bari in the semi-autonomous northern Puntland area.

The two were abducted in November as they left a hotel in the port of Bosasso.

Freeman works for the Sunday Telegraph and Cendon is a freelance.
