US citizen rescued by American forces in Nigeria: Pentagon

WASHINGTON, Oct 31 (Reuters) - U.S. forces carried out a rescue operation in northern Nigeria to recover an American citizen being held by "armed men" on Saturday, the Pentagon said.

"This American citizen is safe and is now in the care of the U.S. Department of State," the Pentagon said in a statement, adding that no military personnel were injured in the operation. (Reporting by Idrees Ali Editing by Frances Kerry)
