Red Cross Worker Italian Eugenio Vagni Finally Freed

I just read on the news that the 62 year old Italian Eugenio Vagni was freed early today Sunday. Vagni was a worker of the International Committee Red Cross (ICRC) who was held captive by the rebel Abu Sayaff for about 6 months when they are in a humanitarian mission in Jolo, Sulu.

His other companions Andreas Notter of Switzerland and Mary Jean Lacaba was released earlier than him. Vagni is said to be of good health although he was suffering from hernia and hypertension. He was able to contact his family already and wow I know his family are thankful that he was not killed.
