American hostage Philip Walton rescued in dramatic military operation: Officials | ABC News

The U.S., Niger and Nigeria governments had been working together to locate and rescue U.S. citizen Philp Walton, who had been kidnapped last week. CIA intelligence and Marine Special Operations elements in Africa were able to locate Walton in Nigeria, one country over from where he was taken. SEAL Team Six carried out the successful hostage rescue and killed all but one of the captors. President Donald Trump called the rescue mission a “big win for our very elite U.S. Special Forces” and the Pentagon announced that Walton is receiving care from the Department of State. No U.S. military members were injured during the rescue mission.
