Oct. 30 (EUROPA PRESS) –

A French-Australian citizen has been released in Chad a day after his kidnapping by armed men, as confirmed on Sunday by the country’s Prime Minister, Salé Kebzabo.

“I have just learned that the French-Australian hostage kidnapped 24 hours ago has just been found and released to safety, in good health. I congratulate our Defense and Security Forces for this prompt and successful action,” the first Minister.

The released citizen worked for the Sahara Conservation Fund in a wildlife reserve in northeastern Chad and had been kidnapped “by as yet unidentified individuals.”

Radio France Internationale identifies the freed man as Jérôme Hugonnot, 51, returning from the capital and heading to the life base of the Ouadi-Rimé Oryx reserve.
