Kidnapped Australian woman's joy at being freed

Militants have freed an Australian woman kidnapped with her husband last month in Burkina Faso, releasing her in neighbouring Niger.

Jocelyn Elliott and her husband Ken were snatched from Djibo near the border with Mali.

The couple had provided medical services in the town since the 1970s.

Speaking to reporters, Mrs Elliott spoke of her hopes of being reunited with her husband and continuing their work.
