August 19, 2004

[EAB Press - Burundi] We thank God for the release of Bishop Pie Ntukamazina and those with him, including MU members, following their abduction by FNL rebels on Sunday 8th August.

The group of 18 were returning from a confirmation at Muyama when they were ambushed. None of them was harmed although personal items were stolen. Their 3 vehicles were set on fire but not totally destroyed. Their release came following the intervention of the CNDD-FDD and they were able to return to Bujumbura on Monday morning.
