Two Italian Women Freed from Captivity in Syria

Two Italian aid workers abducted in Syria last summer have been released, the Italian government said Thursday, according to AFP.

“Greta Ramelli and Vanessa Marzullo are free, they will return to Italy soon,” the government said in a tweet from its official account.

Officials did not immediately release any further details of how the two young women had come to be freed by or from their unknown abductors. The foreign ministry said it was the result of “intense work by team Italy.”

Team Italy = Substantial Ransom

    Italy has got way bigger problems than dealing with Isis…. they have to deal with their Pope who appears to be about as mentally stable as Jimmy Carter.

      He’s more concerned with global warming and not upsetting muzzies than caring for his Catholic members. But he’s another Latin type, all talk and no action.

        Flaky Frank apparently got a very good global warming from the sun furnace while in Sri Lanka. Live and learn.

    “Aid workers” – a polite euphemism for leftist, pro islamist idiots who often go where they are not wanted to do what is not needed and wind up being kidnapped..

    So Italy is paying to get two more leftists idiots who took off to a war zone where neither side treats women as anything but sex toys and slaves and then they are surprised when their offers of help end up with them abducted and most likely abused by the captors. So now that they are getting them back what are the chances these idiots learned anything? Or is it more likely they will continue to support the sorts of causes / groups that abducted them and then blame it on the conservatives of the world.
