Syrian bishop demands the release of abducted nuns - Aid to the Church in Need

"I demand the immediate release of the nuns, who have done no harm to anyone." These were the words of a local Catholic leader in Syria following the abduction of nuns from Maalula.
 
The Syriac Orthodox Metropolitan of Homs and Hama, Selwanos Boutros Alnemeh, called on all to put pressure on the abductors.

Bishop Selwanos"We've now reached the point where even nuns are being abducted. What have they done wrong? It's a crime. The abductors want to demonstrate that they know no mercy."

He made his comments on Monday, December 9th, while speaking with international Catholic pastoral charity Aid to the Church in Need (ACN).
