Hostages – Statements by M. François Hollande, President of the Republic, at the press conference (excerpts)

Paris, January 14, 2014

(…)

Those are my New Year greetings to you, and my thoughts go especially to four people who aren’t here, who are being held hostage, who are journalists – and I’m not forgetting the [other] two who are not [journalists] and who are being held in the Sahel. Those four journalists taken hostage in Syria are Didier François, Edouard Elias, Nicolas Henin and Pierre Torres. We’ll continue to do everything to get them released successfully. Thank you./.
