A picture taken on March 1, 2013 shows a roadsign advertising a gendarmerie post in Dabanga near the Nigerian border, where seven French family members were kidnapped, and where their abandonned car was found bogged down. 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. The kidnappers who appeared with the hostages in a YouTube video on February 25 claimed to be members of Boko Haram, an extremist group that has killed hundreds in northern Nigeria since 2009.
