A US hostage in Nigeria has been rescued by SEAL Team 6 in a daring raid. Philip Walton had been abducted on Monday from a village near the border with Nigeria. Walton had been living with his wife and child in the village of Massalata for two years. It’s unclear why Walton was targeted and who the armed group were. President Trump tweeted out a show of support, calling the operation a ’big win’.
