French tourist abducted in Algeria by militant group

  • As confirmed by French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius, a French tourist by the name of Herve Gourdel, 55, was kidnapped on Sunday, September 21, by an Algerian militant group from the Kabylie area. Authentic online video of Gourdel flanked by armed men further confirms the news.

    The Algerian militant group Jund al-Khilafa terrorized to kill Gourdel if France did not stop its air assaults on Iraq. Though the situation is still extremely critical, France has vowed to do everything to free Mr Gourdel, as per media reports.
