CAMEROON-KIDNAP-FRANCE-NIGERIA

A picture taken on February 20, 2013 in the Cameroonian capital Yaounde shows an entrance of France's embassy. French ambassador in Yaounde announced a 'red zone' was placed across northern Cameroonian and Nigerian borders on February 20, one day after seven members of a French family were seized in a kidnapping allegedly carried out by Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram. French hostages seized in Cameroon are assumedly freed according to a military source on February 21, without further confirmation from French officials. The family -- a couple, their children aged five, eight, 10 and 12 and an uncle -- were snatched in northern Cameroon by six gunmen on three motorbikes on February 19 and officials said they had been taken across the border into Nigeria.
