Australian couple kidnapped in Burkina Faso

Canberra, Jan. 17(ANI): An Australian doctor and his wife have been kidnapped in Burkina Faso but the reason of their abduction is still not confirmed.

A family in Western Australia State cited that Surgeon Ken Elliott and his wife Jocelyn disappeared on Friday night, reported the NEWS 24.

The couple is reported to be in their 80s and was kidnapped in the northern town of Djibo where they used to run a medical center for four decades.

Authorities doubt that the abductions were linked to the attack on the country’s capital Ouagadougou by Al-Qaida fighters that left at least 28 people dead.(ANI)
