    Kenya Detains Corsi

    Nearly two days after two Italian Catholic nuns were kidnapped by gunmen in El Wak in northeastern Kenya, there is no word about their condition or whereabouts.

    A church source closely following the saga told CISA that local elders were working with the government of Kenya and other negotiators to try to secure the release of Sisters Maria Teresa Oliviero and Caterina Giraudo (image on right).

    The Kenya Broadcasting Corporation (KBC) reported on Tuesday that the nuns had been found in Somalia, giving no details.

    No one has claimed responsibility for the heavy Sunday night attack in which government vehicles were also stolen. It was expected that the kidnappers would demand ransom for the release of the nuns, but information available suggests that no such demand has been made.

    Our source said the local people are very devastated by the capture of the nuns and have expressed solidarity with them, an indication that the bandits may have been from outside the community.
