Rebels have freed Father Vittorio Mosele, an Italian priest held in captivity for nearly two months, the missionary news agency, MISNA, reported on Thursday.

Quoting the bishop of Makeni, the agency said that the priest was now on his way to neighbouring Guinea. He was kidnapped from his Kambia mission on 12 February.
