FRENCH HOSTAGE HOME FROM NIGERIA

0

PARIS: A French engineer held hostage for 11 months by Islamist militants in Nigeria arrived home on Monday (Tuesday in Manila) after a dramatic escape described as worthy of an action thriller. A plane carrying Francis Collomp, accompanied by France’s Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, landed on Monday at a military airport outside Paris. The 63-year-old emerged from the plane looking extremely tired and drawn, but smiling. He was met by six relatives and Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault.
