A Flint woman, 33 year old Nicole Mansfield, was killed in Syria during an ambush by government forces on May 30th.  There is no clear reason why Mansfield was even Syria.  Some believe she was there to provide medical support and home care.  There are other reports who believe she was apart of a rebel group fighting against the Syrian government.

According to Rueters, Mansfield and two other people were killed in the ambush.  The Syrian government are reporting the group had weapons and documents that included a sketch of a state building.

We're sad to hear anyone from Flint passing away especially in such a tragic way.  We hope the truth is revealed for closure of the family who are still living in Flint.  Keep up to date with us here.
