Elie Chevieux is alive!
"I have wonderful news. Elie Chevieux is alive. He just called is mother. The informations we have got from the Foreign Affairs Department were wrong. A swiss passport were found on the dead body and a misunderstood was done. I had a discussion with Elie's friends and he is fine, he is right now in Pakistan.
Good news for all of us, but we must not forget that two people were killed."
This news has been all over the world and his father has been interviewed in newspapers etc. It's a terrible mistake by officials! In this case, everything seems to have turned out to the best, but think about how Elie's family and friends must have felt.. It's impossible to even begin to understand..
Swiss teletext reported this afternoon - "Genevan Elie Chevieux was not stoned to death in Kabul. His mother received a telephone call on Friday from the Swiss Ambassador in Iran, who announced that her son was alive and that he had been contacted."
