This undated photo provided by French nuclear manufacturer Areva shows the uranium mine of Arlit, northern Niger. French soldiers operating out of a hotel in Niger's capital and using reconnaissance flights over the Sahara searched Monday Sept. 20, 2010 for seven foreign workers who were kidnapped near a French-operated uranium mine and seemingly swallowed by the vast desert. Armed assailants kidnapped last week seven people near the uranium mining town of Arlit, in northern Niger. Five are French, one is from Togo and one is from Madagascar. Those abducted include a man who worked for Areva and his wife, as well as five employees of a subcontractor called Satom. less
