Somali militants say they killed French hostage

Published: 01.17.13, 10:45 / Israel News

Somalia's most dangerous militant group says it has killed a French hostage that French military forces tried to rescue last weekend.

Al-Shabab said in a Twitter posting Thursday that the agent, codenamed Denis Allex, was executed Wednesday evening Somalia time. French officials have said they believe Allex was killed the night of the raid. Allex, a French intelligence agent, was taken by the militants in July 2009 and had been held ever since. (AP)
