British and Italian Hostages killed in Nigeria

ROME (AFP) – A Briton and an Italian held hostage in Nigeria since May last year have been killed in a failed operation to rescue them, the British and Italian governments said on Thursday.

The rescue operation had been carried out by Nigerian security forces under British operational control, according to a statement from Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti’s office. His British counterpart David Cameron’s office confirmed that the deaths had occurred “during an attempted rescue operation”.

“We are still awaiting confirmation of the details, but the early indications are clear that both men were murdered by their captors, before they could be rescued,” David Cameron said in a statement.
