Somali Gunmen Kidnap Two Catholic Nuns in Kenya

with one comment

Unidentified Somali gunmen kidnapped two Western nuns following a pre-dawn cross-border raid on a Catholic church in neighboring Kenya, a local government official said.

The administration of the region of Gedo in southwestern Somalia is investigating the incident, said Sheikh Hassan Hussein, the governor of Gedo, in a mobile-phone interview today. The whereabouts of the two nuns isn’t known, he said.

We have information that the kidnappers used vehicles to take these two Western Catholic nuns into Somali territory,” he said. He said he didn’t have any further information.
