Jesuit priest feared kidnapped in Syria
Catholic World News - July 30, 2013
Church officials in Syria fear that a prominent Jesuit priest has been kidnapped, the AsiaNews service reports.
Father Paolo dall’Oglio, who was expelled from Syria last year after making statements critical of the Assad regime, reportedly entered the country recently and was traveling in rebel-controlled areas when reports began circulating that he had been kidnapped.
The kidnapping has not been confirmed. Both the apostolic nuncio in Syria and the Italian foreign ministry are investigating.
