Quebec nun freed in Cameroon back in Canada

Sister Gilberte Bussiere is back in Canada after she was released last weekend following her abduction in Cameroon two months ago.

The 74-year old nun arrived at Trudeau airport on Friday.

The sisters of the Congregation de Notre Dame in Montreal says she's in good health and very happy to be reunited with loved ones.

The 74-year old Bussiere and two Italian priests were freed last Sunday after being abducted by armed gangs.

Bussiere, originally from Asbestos, Quebec, has been an educator in Cameroon for 35 years.
