An Australian surgeon and his wife who have worked in Burkina Faso for decades have been kidnapped by Islamic extremists in west Africa.

The couple, Ken and Jocelyn Elliott, were kidnapped in Baraboule near Burkina Faso’s border with Mali on Saturday, the nation’s president, Roch Marc Christian Kabore, told AFP.

Ross and John crossed to Channel 9 reporter Tom Steinfort in Burkina Faso to learn the latest, and get a first-hand report of what it’s like there.

‘This is a country that’s very much unstable, to put it politely.’
