    US JSOC forces rescue nun held as hostage in Africa

    United States Special Forces are thought to have rescued a Louisiana nun who was kidnapped by armed gunmen in Burkina Faso five months ago.

    Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Mark Milley first revealed on Tuesday that Special Operations forces 'recovered another hostage' as he spoke at a ceremony to mark the turnover of the Special Forces Command from Army Gen. Richard Clarke to Army Gen. Bryan Fenton.

    Almost immediately after, both the Catholic Archdiocese of New Orleans and Bishop Theophile, of the Kaya Diocese in Burkina Faso, announced that Sister Suellen Tennyson, 83, had been freed.

    She was taken hostage by a group of unknown gunmen back in April. The area is known to be a hotbed militant groups like ISIS and al Qaeda.

    Military officials have not yet confirmed Tennyson is the hostage who was freed by Special Operations forces, but reports, she is now in US custody in Niamey the capital of Niger.

    Her fellow Marianite nuns have since posted on Facebook that they are working with the FBI 'to facilitate the re-entry process' back to the US.

    Glad they're still putting in work.
