Former French hostages Thierry Dol (top) and Pierre Legrand (C) leave a French government aircraft upon their arrival at Villacoublay military airport, near Paris, October 30, 2013. Four Frenchmen Pierre Legrand, Daniel Larribe, Thierry Dol and Marc Feret held hostage in the Sahara desert by al Qaeda-linked gunmen for three years left Niger on a French government plane on Wednesday morning. The men, who were kidnapped in 2010 while working for French nuclear group Areva and a subsidiary of construction group Vinci in northern Niger, were freed on Tuesday after secret talks.
