Italian Aid -Worker Silvia Romano Freed In Somalia Featured

Mogadishu, Sunday (Horn24) Aid worker Silvia Romano  was set free on Sunday in the Somali capital Mogadishu after her abduction in neighbouring Kenya in November 2019.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte confirmed on Twitter of the release of Romano.

"Silvia Romano has been freed. I thank the women and men of the intelligenfe services. Silvia we are waiting for you in Italy" PM Conte tweeted.

" I've been strong. I didn't give in. I'm fine and I'm looking forward to going back to Italy" Romano is quoted by an Italian agency.

Horn24 established that Romano is at a safe location in Mogadishu.

Gunmen  kidnapped the 23yr  Italian aid worker and shot and wounded a woman and four children in Kilifi county, Kenya in November 2018.

Somali speaking men armed with AK-47 rifles seized the aid worker from a guesthouse in Chakama, a small town close to the south-east coast. Romano was working for Italian charity Africa Milele.

She was seized after she came out of her room to find out what was going on.

The attackers opened fire as they left, wounding a woman and four children, he added. A 10-year-old child was shot in the eye and a 12-year-old was hit in the thigh.
