Two French Journalists Missing in Syria

Hollande demanding their release


Two French journalists missing in Syria must be released immediately, France's President Francois Hollande has said.

Speaking in Japan, he said the men "do not represent any state" and were working "so the world can get information" on the conflict in Syria.

The men were named by their employer, French radio station Europe 1, as Didier Francois and Edouard Elias.

They had been travelling to Aleppo and had not been heard from in 24 hours, Europe 1 said.
