· In the Central African Republic ·
His Excellency Nestor-Desiré Nongo-Aziagbia, Bishop of Bossangoa, who together with three priests of his diocese was abducted by a group of Séléka militia last Wednesday in the north of the Central African Republic, has been freed. Confirmation of his release came on 17 April from the Archbishop of Bangui, Dieudonné Nzapalainga, who had contact with the bishop. “I spoke to him and he told me he is well”. The Archbishop also explained how he initially learned of the kidnapping: “Late in the evening on Wednesday, I received a telephone call from the Bishop of Bossangoa, who told me that he had been taken from his home together with three other religious”. MISCA forces, the African peacekeeping mission deployed in the country and who are present in the city, made contact with the kidnappers.
