From Newsweek today:
An Indian priest kidnapped in Yemen is safe in the war-torn country and New Delhi is in the last stages of negotiating his release, according to a government minister. Four gunmen had reportedly attacked a Catholic nursing home overseen by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity organization in March in the southern port city of Aden, where they kidnapped Uzhunnalil and killed 16 people, including four nuns. Media reports had claimed that the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) was behind the attack but no organization claimed responsibility. But a government minister, speaking to India’s New Delhi Television (NDTV) station, confirmed that Uzhunnalil, a member of the Salesian order, remained alive in the country and that talks between the Indian government and Yemeni rebels to ensure his release were continuing. “It is now clear that the priest is not in the custody of the Islamic State terror group but with anti-government forces in Yemen. Last minute efforts are underway and his release is imminent,” the official said.
