Organisation of Islamic Cooperation urges release of captive Syria bishops

 

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) urged on April 27 an “unconditional” release of two bishops kidnapped this week in Syria.

OIC secretary general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu condemned the kidnapping on Monday of Aleppo’s Greek Orthodox Bishop Boulos Yaziji and Syriac Orthodox Bishop Yohanna Ibrahim by armed men as they were en route to the northern city from the Turkish border.
