Two French hostages freed in Afghanistan


In June last year, NATO special forces rescued one British and one Nigerian woman held hostage in a cave in Badakhshan.

The women, who worked for Swiss-based charity Medair, and two Afghan colleagues had been held for about a week before they were freed unharmed.

In August 2010, the Taliban claimed responsibility for killing eight medical aid workers in Badakhshan, saying they were Christian missionaries.
