ROME (Reuters) - International hostages kidnapped last month by a Nigerian Islamist group have been killed, the Italian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
"Our checks conducted in co-ordination with the other countries concerned lead us to believe that the news of the killing of the hostages seized last month is true," a Foreign Ministry statement said.
A Nigerian Islamist group said on Saturday it had killed the seven foreign hostages seized last month.
