Hostage Silvia Romano in hands of Somali Islamists

Group linked to Al-Shabaab say Rome prosecutors

(ANSA) - Rome, November 18 - Silvia Romano, a Milanese aid worker kidnapped in Kenya on November 20 2018 and then moved to Somalian territory, is in the hands of an Islamist group linked to the jihadists of Al-Shabaab, Rome prosecutors and ROS security police said Monday.
    Investigators are weighing whether to make a request for permission to investigate to Somalian authorities, sources said.
    A special investigation group is being led by assistant prosecutor Sergio Colaiocco, who visited Kenya last August.
