Italian abducted in Punjab, Pakistan

The foreign ministry confirmed the abduction of an Italian citizen today in Multan, southern Punjab, Pakistan.

As soon as the news was received, the Foreign Ministry Crisis Unit immediately activated all channels by which to monitor the situation and facilitate its positive conclusion. Minister Terzi has asked to be kept advised of all developments.

The foreign ministry is also maintaining contact with the family of the person in question.

As in all such cases, the ministry must maintain a tight reserve on all information, and has appealed to the media to respect this praxis in order to avoid compromising liberation efforts.
