S. Korean hostage freed from militants in Burkina Faso to return home in next few days Updated: 2019-05-13 19:07:25 KST

A South Korean hostage rescued from militants in Burkina Faso will likely return home in the next few days.
A foreign ministry official told reporters that she is healthy, but is currently undergoing psychological checkups and treatment.
The forty-year old was kidnapped a month ago near the border between Burkina Faso and Benin, along with one American, and two French nationals.
They were all rescued by the French army last week.
The Korean hostage had reportedly been traveling around the world for a year.
The ministry said it will review the travel alert levels of countries and find better ways to inform people of the travel safety guidelines.
It has also raised the travel alert for the eastern part of Burkina Faso to the second highest level, meaning Koreans there should evacuate.
