NEW DELHI: External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Tuesday that the Indian mother superior of an aid home in Aden, where four nuns were killed and an Indian priest was kidnapped by gunmen, has been safely evacuated.“Sister Sally has been evacuated from Yemen,” Swaraj tweeted today.Swaraj had asserted earlier that India will make all efforts to rescue Father Tom Uzhunnalil, who went missing in Yemen after the attack on the aid home."Yemen is a conflict zone. We do not have an Embassy there. But we will spare no efforts to rescue Father Tom Uzhunnalil," Sushma tweeted.An Indian nun from Jharkhand was among the four nuns who were massacred by unidentified gunmen at a retirement home run by the Missionaries of Charity in Yemen.Sister Sally survived after she hid herself from the gunmen after a guard sounded a warning cry about the attackers.Earlier, Kerala Chief Minister Oomen Chandy said that the Indian Government will shift out Sister Sally as soon as possible.Speaking to reporters Chandy said that after he spoke to Swaraj, Indian officials from Djibouti have established contacts with Sister Sally."I managed to speak to Sister Sally a while ago and she said that she has been contacted by Indian Embassy officials from Djibouti who are expected to come to take her with them on Monday. She said that things are not that smooth where she is and there is no information about Father Tom Uzhunnalil, who hails from Kottayam district and was taken away by the gunmen," he said.
