Bonino 'extremely satisfied' with joint operation07 February, 17:07
The two were taken hostage in Derna, Cyrenaica, several weeks ago. Their families had been asked by the foreign ministry to refrain from commenting on the situation for security reasons. Anti-Italian sentiment has been on the rise in the former colony during Fascism. The Italian cemetery in Tripoli was attacked twice last month, leaving one guard dead and several graves damaged.
