Four French journalists held hostage in Syria
since June were found by Turkish soldiers on its border with Syria
on Saturday, Turkish media reported, and French President Francois Hollande
said the four were in good health.
Hollande said the four were in "good health, in spite of the very gruelling conditions of their captivity." They will be taken to France
in the coming hours, he said in a statement.
Dogan said the journalists had been kidnapped by the rebel group Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant
(ISIL) but that an unknown group brought the journalists to the Turkish border on Friday night. They would be handed over to French officials after medical checks, it said.
