URGENT ¥¥¥ French hostages probably held in two groups: Hollande

President Francois Hollande said Thursday that a French family kidnapped in Cameroon was probably being held in two groups, as security forces searched along the border in Nigeria where they are believed to have been taken.

"We are fully cooperating with Nigerian and Cameroonian authorities to find the location where our citizens are being held," Hollande told reporters, adding that the priority was to "first of all identify the exact place where (they) are being held, probably in two groups."
