The following article, SEAL Team Six Rescues 27-Year-Old American Hostage In Daring Nigerien Raid — Details, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Back in 2011, “SEAL Team Six” became a household term after the elite military unit took down the big bad responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks. On Saturday morning, the outfit was back in the news.
Check this out, via The Daily Wire:
Philipe Nathan Walton, 27, was kidnapped by seven men on motorcyles in Massalata, Niger, on Oct. 26, according to two anonymous sources who spoke to ABC News. Walton was accosted by seven people who came up to him on his farm demanding money, and was taken away when he offered them only $40, U.S. and Nigerien officials said.
Officials also clarified that they did not believe the act was terror-related, but were worried that Walton might be sold by the armed Nigerian group to people associated with radical Islamists, as often happens.
Six of his seven kidnappers, who had demanded ransom from Walton’s father, were killed in a “precision” mission in neighboring Nigeria, officials said early on Saturday.
