US Missionary kidnapped in Niger

An American missionary has been kidnapped in southern Niger, close to the border with Nigeria. No group has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping which took place. 

The missionary, who had been living in the region “for several years,” was abducted “in a garden on the outskirts of Massalata,” a village 250 miles east of the capital Niamey, according to the prefect of the Birni Nkonni department, Ibrahim Abba Le.
