The captors of Father Tom Uzhunnalil, an Indian Catholic priest abducted by international terror group Islamic State from a Missionaries of Charity old age home in Yemen on 4 March, have apparently hacked his Facebook account to post images and a video of the priest.

In the video, the priest is blindfolded and is being beaten by his captors. The caption on the post reads: 'pravachaka sabdam' (voice of God), says the Hindustan Times. There is also a photo of the priest accompanied by the message 'Fr Tom's Entreaty will be uploaded soon'.
