지난 주 아프가니스탄에서 납치됐던 이탈리아인 가브리엘레 토르셀로 사진기자가 무사히 석방됐습니다.
토르셀로 기자는 이탈리아의 온라인 신문인 피스리포터와의 인터뷰에서 자신은 억류돼 있는 동안 햇볕을 본적이 없었으며 쇠사슬에 묶여있었다고 말했습니다.
토르셀로 기자는 지난 달 12일-14일 사이에 통역관과 함께 실종됐으며 납치범들은 아프가니스탄 주둔 이탈리아군 병력이 철수하지 않으면 토르셀로 기자를 처형하겠다고 위협했었습니다.
이탈리아 국방부 당국은 토르셀로 기자가 풀려났다고 확인했으나 자세한 내용은 언급하지 않고 있습니다.
Italy says an Italian photographer kidnapped in Afghanistan last month has been freed in good health.
Italy's defense ministry says Gabriele Torsello was released today (Friday). It gave no details.
In an interview published in an Italian on-line newspaper (PeaceReporter) today, Torsello says he never saw daylight while he was held. He says his captors kept him in chains as well.
Torsello and his interpreter disappeared between October 12th and 14th. His kidnappers had said they would kill him if Italy's 18-hundred troops were not withdrawn from Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, in western Herat province, suspected militants with machine guns killed six policemen on patrol. The district police chief was among those killed, and three police were wounded.
