Yemen Olympic Committee urges release of Italian hostage


(ANSA) - London, July 31 - Yemen's Olympic committee
launched an appeal Tuesday for the release of an Italian
policeman kidnapped in their homeland.
Naela Nasser, head of the Yemeni delegation to the
Olympics, told ANSA that the kidnapping of Alexander Spadotto
was "contrary to our traditions" and an act that "no one can
approve of".
Spadotto, a Carabinieri officer providing security at
Italy's embassy in Yemen's capital city of Sanaa, was kidnapped
Sunday by a local tribe.
The tribe is demanding a prisoner exchange for Spadotto's
safe release.
In a phone conversation Monday, Yemen's Minister of Foreign
Affairs, Abu Bakr al Qirbi assured his Italian counterpart
Giulio Terzi of the Sanaa government's efforts to find the
kidnapped officer.
