New Delhi: India will spare no effort to rescue Father Tom Uzhunnalil, who went missing in Yemen after the Islamic State militant group attacked a care home run by the Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in a tweet said, “Though there was no Indian Embassy in Yemen, we will spare no efforts to rescue Father Tom Uzhunnalil.”

The minister noted that there was a camp office in Djibouti. She also corrected the number of Indians killed in the attack from four to one.

Gunmen stormed the refuge for the elderly on Friday, killing a Yemeni guard before tying up and shooting 15 other employees. (ANI)
