Brother of Hostage Appeals to Al-Qaeda for Release

The brother of one of six French hostages being held by al Qaeda in North Africa’s Sahel region has released a video appealing to the kidnappers for information, and for a return to the negotiating table with the French government.

The move has angered some of the hostages’ families, who say they were not consulted about the appeal and insist that it is the French government – and not the hostage-takers – that hold the key to getting the six released.
