According to a report out today by World Watch Monitor, a Swiss missionary who had been kidnapped a second time in northern Mali has been executed by her abductors. The source of the information was a woman aid worker who was held with the Swiss woman.
The first time the Swiss missionary was taken in northern Mali was in 2012. She was kept for 10 days. She returned home to Switzerland for a time, but then went to Timbuktu to continue her mission work. She appeared in several films produced by jihadist groups during her period of captivity which started in 2016 this second time.
Pray for the others who are still being held captive in this region of the world.
