Somali gunmen kidnap French journalists

Somali gunmen stormed a hotel in the capital Mogadishu and kidnapped two French journalists today, a hotel worker said.
“Several gunmen entered the Sahafi Hotel, pointed guns at the guards and went into the hotel rooms where they took away the two French nationals,” the hotel manager, who declined to be named, told Reuters.
“The two males told me they were journalists,” he added.
It was not immediately clear which media the two journalists were working for.
Somalia is one of the world’s most dangerous places for journalists, both local and foreign, to operate and several have been kidnapped or killed.
