Kenya: Italian Nuns Kidnapped

EL WAK – Two Italian nuns were kidnapped in a pre-dawn raid by gunmen in Kenya, and officials suspect they have been taken over the boarder into Somalia, the BBC reported on November 10.  In Somalia, armed gangs have kidnapped and killed a number of aid workers, while there have also been repeated attacks on Catholic targets. There is some confusion over exactly how the nuns were abducted. Kenyan police said they were collaborating with Somali elders over the incident, AFP news agency reported.
