Kerala priest released by ISIS after 18 months
Catholic priest from Kerala, Father Tom Uzhunnalil has been released by the terror group ISIS after 18 months.
The priest had been kidnapped by ISIS in March 2016 from an old-age home in Yemen during a terror attack. 16 people including four nuns were killed in the attack.
As per reports, the priest was released due to the efforts of Oman Foreign Ministry and officials of Yemen government.
In May 2017, a video had been released online that showed the priest claiming that the Indian government was doing little for his release.
His family in Kerala has thanked both the Indian and Oman governments for bringing him back.
