Hollande and families welcome French journalists home

President Francois Hollande has met four French journalists who have arrived back in France after their release from 10 months of captivity in Syria.

Edouard Elias, Didier Francois, Nicolas Henin and Pierre Torres flew in from Turkey on a French Air Force plane.

They had been found, blindfolded and handcuffed, by Turkish soldiers in a no-man's land separating Turkey and Syria late on Friday.
