(ANSA) - Rome, July 18 - Italian Foreign Minister Giulio
Terzi confirmed on Wednesday that kidnapped Italian aid worker
Rossella Urru has been freed in Algeria.
"She has been liberated. It's wonderful news," said Terzi.
Urru, who comes from Sardinia, and her Spanish colleagues,
Ainhoa Fernandez Rincon and Enrico Gonyans, were abducted on
October 23 from the Rabuni refugee camp in southwestern Algeria
by the terrorist group Movement for Unity and Jihad in West
Africa.
They were taken by armed men who arrived in a jeep,
possibly from northern Mali.
The EFE news agency reported Wednesday that both Spanish
captives have also been freed.
Urru, 29, works for the Rome-based International Committee
for the Development of Peoples (CISP) and spent the past two
years working in the Saharawi refugee camp before she was
kidnapped.
