New Delhi: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj informed on Saturday that terrorists have abducted Father Tom Uzhunnalil, an Indian national, in Yemen.      

Swaraj took to twitter to convey the message of Uzhunnalil's abduction, saying Indian Camp office in Djibouti is trying to ascertain the whereabouts of Father.

The incident comes a day after 16 people including four nuns, out of which one belonged to India, were killed in strife-torn Yemen's Aden city. A group of terrorists stormed an elderly care home run by Kolkata-based Missionaries of Charity, handcuffed the victims before shooting them in the head.
