Burkina Faso: Freed Australian hostage arrives in Ouagadougou

An Australian aid worker abducted by Al-Qaeda-linked jihadists in Burkino Faso arrived at the Ouagadougou International Airport, Monday, after being released by her captors.
Seventy-six-year-old Jocelyn Elliott was abducted along with her husband Dr. Ken Elliott close to the border with Niger on the night of January 15. Although Ms Elliott was freed after negotiations this weekend, her husband has yet to be released by the group.
The Australian couple have run a medical clinic in Djibo, Burkina Faso, since 1972. Upon returning to Ouagadougou, Elliott said that she will now endeavour to secure her husband's release, so that they may both return to Djibo to continue their work.
