French aid worker freed in Afghanistan

French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that a French aid worker seen in an Afghanistan hostage video was released by his captors "minutes ago." Dany Egreteau, a 32-year-old worker for Solidarite Laique, or Secular Solidarity, was captured by gunmen in Kabul on November 3 as he drove to work with another aid worker who managed to escape. Sarkozy announced on Wednesday that he would be returned to France on Thursday.
