Oman says secures release of Indian priest abducted in Yemen

AFP  |  Muscat 

Muscat has secured the release of an Indian priest who was abducted during a deadly attack by Islamist militants in Yemen, Oman's official agency said today.

Thomas Uzhunnalil has been held captive since March 2016, when jihadists attacked a care home operated by missionaries in the southern port city of Aden, killing 16 people.
