Missing Quebec woman was kidnapped, taken to Mali: Human Rights Watch

A Canadian woman who’s been missing in West Africa for several months has reportedly been kidnapped and taken to Mali.

Edith Blais of Quebec and her travel companion, Luca Taccheto of Italy, went missing in December while travelling in Burkina Faso.

They were travelling by car in southwestern Burkina Faso en route to Togo, where they planned to do volunteer work with an aid group.

Ironic given the Trudeau government has decided to end its participation in the Mali peacekeeping mission.
