Bulgaria: Al Qaeda in Mali Spread a Video with a Colombian Hostage Source: Twitter

An agency that monitors jihadi websites has reported that Al Qaeda's branch in Mali has posted a video with a Colombian missionary who has been held hostage for nearly a year, the Associated Press reported.
 
In the video, Gloria Cecilia Narvazez turns to Pope Francis.

The nun was captured near the border with Burkina Faso and was held hostage from 7 February. A video with her and five other hostages was circulated in July before a visit of the French president in Mali, AP reminds.

In the record, released on Monday, Narvaze spoke to her family and the head of her mission.
 
A spokesman for Nusrat al Islam Muslimeen advises the family to donate money to secure her release, suggesting that the other released hostages have donated funds through independent charities.
