French Family Abducted in North Cameroon, Paris Urges Citizens to Leave

Local Editor

France on Wednesday urged its citizens to leave northern Cameroon after seven members of a French family were seized in a kidnapping officials suspect was carried out by Nigerian extremist group Boko Haram.

The family- a couple, their children aged five, eight, 10 and 12 and an uncle – were snatched in northern Cameroon by six gunmen on three motorbikes on Tuesday and officials said they had been taken across the border into Nigeria.

The French foreign ministry in a notice urged citizens in the far north “to leave the area as quickly as possible” and advised against travel to areas bordering Nigeria until further notice.
