A Franciscan nun from Colombia kidnapped by jihadists in Mali more than four years ago has been freed, Mali's presidency said.
Jihadists have overtaken areas with weak governmental leadership.
Thousands of other people have also been displaced, pushed from their homes and lands due to the conflict.
The other faithful kidnapped with him were released on the 23rd of June.
Kidnapped on the 21st of June in Mopti, in the centre of Mali, Father Léon Dougnon was released on the 13th of July.
The Colombian nun of the Franciscan Congregation of Mary Immaculate has worked for many years in Muslim-dominated Mali.
For the last four years, the Franciscan religious sister has been held captive by Islamist terrorists.
Open Doors listed Mali as the 28th most dangerous country in the world to be a Christian in 2021.
