Kiwi injured but free in Nigeria

Stuff reports:

A New Zealander that was kidnapped and released in Nigeria has sustained injuries that weren’t “life-threatening”, says Prime Minister John Key.

Kiwi Jamal Khan and three Australians were kidnapped in a deadly attack in Nigeria and were rescued four days after being taken hostage by gunmen.

“I have some information about Mr Khan’s health and well-being,” Key said on Monday, having been informed on Sunday night.

For privacy reasons, Key couldn’t share much about Khan’s injuries except to say: “None of the injuries he sustained are life-threatening.”

Pleased he has been freed, along with the Aussies. Details seem murky on how he was freed, but I imagine will become clearer in time.
