Ex-hostage Nicolas Henin: Captors are 'fragile' jihadis

A French journalist who was held hostage for 10 months in Syria by the British militant known as "Jihadi John" has been speaking to the BBC about his time in captivity.

Nicolas Henin was speaking to mark the publication of a children's book he wrote for his five-year-old daughter while being held in captivity.

He told the BBC's Lucy Williamson his captors had little to do with the local Arab or Muslim culture but were "the product of our culture, of our world".
