AQIM Murder French Volunteer
The brave mujahideen murder a 78 year old man who was volunteering to improve the lives of North Africans. BBC:
The leader of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) had earlier said Mr Germaneau was killed in revenge for a failed rescue raid in Mali.
Mr Germaneau was kidnapped in Niger in April. A retired engineer, he was in the region as a volunteer aid worker.
Last year, the group said it had executed the British hostage, Edwin Dyer, and it is still thought to be holding two Spanish aid workers, Roque Pascual and Albert Vilalta, who were seized in Mauritania in November.
