April 07, 2014

Two missionary priests and a nun were kidnapped in Cameroon on April 4, and Church officials fear that they may have been abducted by forces of Boko Haram, the terrorist group operating mainly in neighboring Nigeria.

Fathers Giampaolo Marta and Gianantonio Allegri, Italian missionaries, and Sister Gliberte Bissiere, a native of Canada, were seized Friday night, and officials have been unable to establish their current whereabouts or the identity of the kidnappers.
