Indian priest thankful, even to abductors, after release from Yemen

Indian priest thankful, even to abductors, after release from YemenAn Indian priest kidnapped last year during a deadly attack by Islamist militants in Yemen thanked on Saturday all those involved in his release, and even had a kind word for his abductors for not harming him. “The best weapon against any enemy is love and prayer,” Uzhunnalil said at a press conference in Rome after an intervention by the authorities in Oman to secure his release. Muscat said Tuesday that it had “coordinated with Yemeni parties” to mediate the release of Uzhunnalil, a Salesian priest who had last appeared in a video circulated online in December 2016, in which he appealed to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Pope Francis to secure his release.
