Freed two French journalists kidnapped in Afghanistan in 2009

The French journalists Hervé Ghesquière and Taponier Stéphane and his interpreter Reza Din, who had been kidnapped on December 30, 2009 in Afghanistan have been released, as reported by the Elysee Palace on Wednesday in a statement. The French public television, for which they worked, also confirmed the release.

Elysee sources had reported yesterday that it appeared that the release was imminent because they were "satisfied all the demands of the kidnappers." In a statement the Elysee said Sarkozy "welcomed the release" of two journalists from the TV channel "France 3".
