Al Qaeda Backed Militants Frees Australian Woman in Burkina Faso

According to the reporters, an Australian woman who was abducted last month in northern Burkina Faso had been freed by the Islamic State militants, although her husband remains in captivity despite pleas from the family and efforts made by the officials to make his release.

As reported, Jocelyn Elliott and her husband , Surgeon Ken Elliott were been abducted on 15th January near the Burkina Faso town of Djibo, where they had run a medical clinic for four decades.

According to an audio recording translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, which tracks jihadi activity online, the responsibility for the kidnapping had been claimed by group, Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, though the group said in an audio statement on Friday that it would release Jocelyn Elliott so as not to make women involved in the war. Both husband and wife are in their 80s.

According to a statement carried out by Australian media on Sunday from the Elliott`s family, “We are trusting that the moral and guiding principles of those who have released our mother will also be applied to our elderly father who has served the community of Djibo and the Sahel for more than half his lifetime.”
