Afghanistan: two kidnapped French journalists believed to be in good health
Friday, January 1, 2010
"The two French journalists appear to be alive, in good health and being well treated," said a source involved in the attempts to release them.
A local spokesman confirmed that the group of two journalists from France 3, their translator and his brother and cousin had been abducted, and that Afghan security forces along with French soldiers from the local NATO mission were looking for them.
France Télévisions, who employs the journalists, has not confirmed the kidnapping, merely stating that they had received no news from them in the past 48 hours.
