The Taliban Way

The kidnappers of an Italian photojournalist in Afghanistan demanded on Tuesday the return of an Afghan Christian convert living in Italy in exchange for keeping the reporter alive.

The kidnappers of 36-year-old Gabriele Torsello gave four days for their demand to be met.

Earlier this year Italy granted political asylum to 41-year-old Afghan Abdul Rahman, who faced possible execution under Islamic Sharia law in Afghanistan for converting to Christianity.
