Desperate appeal

06 January 2017


The Indian RC priest Fr Thomas Uzhunnalil, who was abducted by Islamic militants in Yemen last year (News, 11 March), pleads for help in a video posted on the Internet on Boxing Day. In the video, he says: “If I were a European priest, I would have been taken more seriously. I am from India. I am perhaps not considered as of much value. . . I pray you all, ask you all, beg you all to do your mightiest to help me to save my life. I need hospitalisation soon. Please come to my help quickly”
