World News: Colombian nun held hostage in Mali since 2017 has been freed – Gulf Digital News

BAMAKO: A Colombian nun who was kidnapped in 2017 by militants in Mali has been freed, Mali’s presidency said on Saturday.

Gloria Cecilia Narvaez was kidnapped by the Macina Liberation Front, an Al Qaeda linked group, in February 2017 near the border with Burkina Faso.

“The presidency of Mali salutes the courage and bravery of the nun. This liberation is the crowning achievement of four years and eight months of combined efforts by several intelligence services,” Mali’s presidency said in a statement.
