Nigeria sect holds 7 French hostages including 4 children
It would be recalled that the tourists were kidnapped at around 7 am on the 18th of February in a small village about 10km from the Nigerian border in the north of the country, where Westerners often go for holidays.
The kidnappings come amid a French-led intervention in Mali to oust Islamist rebels. Boko Haram had since claimed responsibility. Eight French citizens are being held in the Sahel region by Islamist groups. What is your take on this one?
