ISIS ‘crucifies Catholic priest on Good Friday’

YAMEN (TIP): The Indian Catholic priest kidnapped by ISIS-linked terrorists in Yemen earlier this month was crucified on Good Friday, it has been claimed.

Father Thomas Uzhunnalil, 56, was taken by Islamist gunmen, reportedly linked to ISIS, killing at least 16 people, on March 4 – including four nuns – during the incident at the home in Aden, which is run by missionaries, the International Business Times India said.

The terrorists reportedly carried out the heinous murder on Good Friday, after threatening to do so earlier in the week, according to the Archbishop of Vienna.

However, a member of Bangalore’s Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco, Bangalore, of which Father Uzhunnalil was previously a part, told the International Business Times India: “There is no information about the whereabouts of Father Tom. We are only praying for him.”
