On the evening of 4 April 2022, gunmen abducted a U.S. expatriate in the northeastern department of Yalgo. The gunmen kidnapped the U.S. national – a Catholic nun serving as a missionary who has resided at a convent in Yalgo since 2014 – after they vandalized the convent and attempted to steal a community vehicle. There have been no ransom demands and the abducted nun’s location remains unknown.
