Kottyam: The Centre on Saturday confirmed the abduction of Keralite priest Tom Uzhunnalil (56) by the Islamic State.External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Saturday that efforts to rescue the priest are going on. Kerala Chief Minister Oommen Chandy's office is closely monitoring the situation and is in touch with the ministry of external affairs and people concerned in Yemen and other countries. Earlier this month, armed militants barged into an old people's home set up by Mother Teresa near Yemen in 1992 and shot dead many, including four nuns of the Missionaries of Charity, including one from India. These militants later whisked away the Kerala priest and there has been no word from him ever since.
