In a “goodwill gesture,” two Americans who had been held in Afghanistan were freed on Tuesday, according to US officials. 

 In order to be reunited with their families, it is thought that the US citizens arrived in Qatar later on the same day. Ivor Shearer, a filmmaker who was detained in August while in the region where US drones murdered al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, has been released. According to CNN, the second prisoner’s name was being withheld at the family’s request. According to Ned Price, a spokesman for the State Department, neither prisoners nor money were exchanged for the release. It seemed to be a “goodwill gesture” on the side of the Taliban, he said.
