SEAL Team 6 rescues American hostage in Nigeria | Military Times

Philipe Nathan Walton was kidnapped from his farm in Massalata in southern Niger on October 26th. His captors took him to demand a ransom from his father, and he has a wife and young daughter. The U.S., Niger, and Nigeria worked together to uncover information on his location before SEAL Team 6 carried out the rescue operation. While the armed militants are currently not considered to be terror-related, hostages are often sold to terror networks.
