Four French journalists Z
home after Syrian captivity , J

Reporters were
kidnapped by
Islamic extremists
in separate incidents
PARIS (AP) - Four French
journalists kidnapped and held
for 10 months in Syria returned
home Sunday to joyful families,
a presidential welcome and ques-
tions about how France managed
to obtain their freedom from
Islamic extremists.
Edouard Elias, Didier Fran-
cois, Nicolas Henin and Pierre
Torres were freed Saturday by
their kidnappers at the Turkish
border. They were captured in
two separate incidents last June.
Francois recounted details
of the captivity on Europe 1
radio, saying there were periods
of "total isolation," numerous
transfers to new locations and,
sometimes, chains to guard
- U5

against escape.
The four were kidnapped
in two separate incidents last
June, and it was unclear how
much time they spent together.
Since his capture, Francois said
he felt like he had been living
in a "black hole ... in basements
without seeing daylight, includ-
ing a month and a half chained
one to another."
"It's such a delight and a
relief to be free, to see the sky ...
to breath the fresh air, to walk,
to talk to you;" said Francois, 53,
a noted war reporter for Europe
Elias, 23, a freelance photog-
rapher, also was working for
Europe 1 radio. Henin, 37, and
Torres, 29, are freelance jour-
At an emotional welcome cer-
emony at Villacoublay military
airport outside Paris, President
Francois Hollande saluted their
return as "a moment of joy" for
their families and France.

Hollande praised Turk-
ish authorities for helping in
the journalists' return, but
didn't elaborate. It was unclear
whether Turkey played a role in
the negotiations to obtain the
journalists' freedom. The four
were released at the Turkish-
Syrian border and found by
Turkish police.
Hollande insisted that France
honored its policy of not paying
"It's a very important prin-
ciple so that hostage-takers are
not tempted to capture others,"
Hollande told Europe 1. He
stressed the role of negotiations
and intelligence work - as he
has in the past when hostages
were freed, notably in Mali,
where two French remain in
Foreign Minister Laurent
Fabius, in response to a question,
told Europe 1 that no weapons
were delivered to the Islamic
radicals holdingthe four.
"There was no question of
contact with the Syrian govern-
ment" of Bashar Assad, Fabius
said. France and other Western
nations blame Assad for Syria's
civil war and want him removed
from power.
"So it was of another nature,"
he said, suggesting some bargain
was struck.
The journalists' captors
haven't been formally identified,
although the Islamic State of Iraq
and the Levant, among the most
radical of the Islamic groups
operating in Syria, are suspected.
A Syrian who served as translator
and guide for two of the journal-
ists said that breakaway al-Qaida
group surely captured them in
the eastern province of Raqqa.
Hussam al-Ahmad, 23, told
The Associated Press that
Henin and Torres aroused the
fighters' suspicion after they
entered a school and asked to
take pictures of the fighters as
they played soccer. The jour-
nalists were seized four days
after an initial interrogation, al-
Ahmad said.

Immortal Technique, who has

mission, he could also contribute
to their efforts to educate others
