French Hostage Allegedly Kills Three Men To Escape

August 28, 2009

Somalia (ChattahBox) – A French man, who was one of two hostages to be taken by Somali militants, has escaped after killing three of his captors and running to a local government safe haven.

The two men had been taken from a Mogadishu hotel on July 14th, and then separated and given to two separate extremist groups, the Hizbul Islam, a local rebel group, and the al-Shabaab, who have been named an al-Qaeda sub-group.

While an anonymous source within the Hizbul Islam confirmed that three captors were killed, the French government has released a statement denying rumors.

“Contrary to certain allegations and rumors, this occurred without violence and France did not pay any ransom. The second hostage is still being held.”

They refused to elaborate on how the man had managed to escape, if without ransom or violence.

No matter what happened, the unnamed man is safe and healthy. Officials have not released how they plan to free the second hostage.
