Beirut, July 31 - Italian Jesuit priest Paolo
Dall'Oglio, who disappeared in northern Syria on Sunday, "has
not been kidnapped but has suspended all external contacts as
part of negotiations" he is carrying out with jihadist members
of the Syrian opposition, activists who accompanied the priest
to Syria told ANSA on Wednesday.
The activists said Dall'Oglio entered Syria across the
border with Turkey and has been negotiating with the militants
since Sunday.
The priest had an appointment with Abu Bakr al Baghdadi,
head of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, an
organization linked to the al Nusra Front, the main jihadist
group in the Syrian opposition.
Dall'Oglio told the activists that he would interrupt all
contact for a few days.
On Tuesday several websites of the Syrian opposition
reported that the Jesuit was mediating to obtain the release of
a television troupe working for an anti-regime broadcaster
abducted recently near the city of Aleppo.
