Gino Pollicardo and Filippo Calcagno, the two former Italian hostages who had been recentrly set free after a blitz, were handed over to the Italians and left Sabratha. The news was communicated to Ansa Agency by the president of the Municipal Council of the Libyan city, Hussei al-Zawadi. “I have no idea about where they are heading” the mayor’s answered a journalist who had asked whether the plane had already taken off and whether its destination was Italy.
The bodies of Salvatore Failla and Fausto Plan, the two hostages who had been killed are still in Sabratha, where they will remain until autopsy is done. “As to them, there are procedures under way,” said mayor al-Zawadi.
Besides, Sabratha authorities forwarded three photos of Pollicardo and Calcagno to Ansa (one of which was used in this article). On the first one, the two Italians can be seen in a group of people, some of whom are in military uniforms, at a table. In the other two pictures, Pollicardo and Calcagno are receiving a plaque from the hands of a bearded man who is probably mayor al-Zawadi.
