French President Francois Hollande said Friday that no ransom had been paid for a family kidnapped in Cameroon two months ago, after the seven-strong group was released.

Speaking in Paris about the released family, he reaffirmed that France "does not cede on (its) principles", the "non-payment by France of ransoms."
