VAT­I­CAN CITY:

Arab Times - - LOCAL -

A Catholic priest from In­dia who was freed af­ter be­ing held 18 months in Ye­men said Satur­day that he was never phys­i­cally harmed, even if his cap­tors feigned hit­ting him on videos re­leased dur­ing his cap­tiv­ity. Of­fi­cials said they had no knowl­edge of a ran­som hav­ing been paid.

The Rev Tom Uzhun­nalil was kid­napped from a home for se­nior cit­i­zens in Aden, south­ern Ye­men, es­tab­lished by Mother Teresa’s Mis­sion­ar­ies of Char­ity in March 2016. Four nuns were killed dur­ing the at­tack. Uzhun­nalil’s voice broke as he pub­licly ex­pressed his con­do­lences. (AP)
