Fr. Tom Uzhunnalil rescued

A priest from Kerala who was kidnapped in Yemen last year has been rescued, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said.

“I am happy to inform that Father Tom Uzhunnalil has been rescued,” Sushma tweeted with a photograph of the priest.

Father Tom Uzhunnalil was abducted by ISIS in March 2016 after an attack on an old people’s home run by missionaries in the southern port city of Aden.

Gunmen posing as relatives of one of the residents at the home burst inside, killing 16 including four Indian nuns.
