Islamist abductors claim to be from the Nigerian Militant group Boko Haram hold a French family of seven, including four children as hostages in Cameroon.
The kidnappers demands their women and prisoners in Nigeria and Cameroon to be released since the president of France launched a war on Islam.
The French Family was abducted in an area of Nigeria called In Aménas by armed men in vehicles at a gas station. This group of militants have a history of demanding ransom, so it is unclear whether their demands are about politics or money.
