2 Kidnapped Westerners Found Alive in Mali

An official of the United Nations mission in Mali says two people who were kidnapped in Burkina Faso in December 2018 have been released.  

Mission officials say the Canadian woman and the Italian man were found near Kidal, in northern Mali, and were turned over to U.N. peacekeepers in good health.  

The two are identified as Edith Blais and Luca Tacchetto.
