French President Francois Hollande (L) walks with former French hostages Marc Feret (2ndL), Thierry Dol (C), Pierre Legrand (2ndR) and Daniel Larribe (R) on the tarmac upon their arrival at Villacoublay military airport, near Paris, October 30, 2013. The four Frenchmen 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.
