An 88-year-old Australian doctor who was kidnapped and held in captivity for the past seven years in West Africa has been released.

Mr Elliot had been running a local hospital in the region since the 1970s and was taken by terrorists in 2016 along with his wife Jocelyn and four others.

His wife was released the following month but he was kept as a hostage.

The Department of Foreign Affairs released a statement this morning confirming he is now safe and has been reunited with his family.
