MOSCOW, April 24 (RIA Novosti) - Two Christian bishops, abducted in Syria earlier this week, were released on Tuesday evening, Al-Jazeera reported citing a church official.
“The kidnapped priests, Bishop Boulos Yazigi of the Greek Orthodox Church and Bishop John Ibrahim of the Assyrian Orthodox Church, were released on Tuesday and arrived safely in the city of Aleppo,” the broadcaster said on its website, citing information provided by Greek Orthodox Bishop Tony Yazigi.
Syrian news agency SANA reported on Monday the bishops were kidnapped at gunpoint in the village of Kafr Dael. The bishops were on a humanitarian mission.
