The families of four hostages being held by Al-Qaeda's north African branch on Monday urged the French government to show a "willingness to negotiate" with the militant group.

The call was issued against a background of fears for the lives of the hostages following the reported killing of two Al-Qaeda-linked leaders by French-backed Chadian troops in Mali over the weekend.
