Somalia's Al-Qaeda-linked Shebab said on January 14 a French soldier wounded and captured during a failed hostage rescue raid has died and published pictures of the purported commando chief's body. France's military operation on January 12 to free a French spy held hostage by the Shebab since July 2009 was a failure, with another French soldier killed and the situation of the hostage unclear.
