The Swiss woman who was abducted in Yemen in mid-March has appealed to her government to release her from the kidnappers, believed to be from Al-Qaeda.
It was the third time the Swiss teacher had appeared in a videotape appealing to her government to do something for her release.
The woman is 32-years old and was kidnapped near her home in the port city of Hodeida in western Yemen.
She worked as a language teacher before her kidnapping. The Swiss authorities reported shortly after the incident that the abductors were demanding to release fellow tribesmen in return for her release.
Al-Qaeda kidnapped three foreigners this year coinciding with a US-backed offensive that drove the militants out of their strongholds in the south in the past few months.
One of the hostages, a Frenchman who works with the Red Cross, was released last month, but the Saudi diplomat and the Swiss woman are still held.
The authorities have attempted few times to release them and sent envoys to mediate and negotiate their release, but the efforts went in vain.
The Saudi diplomat and the Swiss are believed to be held in Shabwa province.
