Italian priest killed for running over girl

Angry villagers beat an Italian priest to death and abducted three nuns after their vehicle run over and killed a young girl in the north of the Republic of Congo, a government spokesman said Monday.

The accident occurred near the village of Onouengue, about 500 kilometers (300 miles) north of the capital Brazzaville on Monday, when the all-wheel-drive vehicle driven by Father Angelo Radelli ran over and killed a young girl, the AP reports.

"The priest came out of the vehicle to check on the girl and was attacked and beaten to death," Alain Akouala, the Republic of Congo's government spokesman told The Associated Press.

"One scared French nun and another Congolese fled. We have not been able to locate them," Akouala said.

A government delegation led by the country's minister of territorial administration, Francois Ibovi left the capital Brazzaville for Onouengue to try and secure the release of the abducted nuns, Akouala said.

Radelli arrived in the parish in Makoua just a little over a week ago.
