Still no word on kidnapped French TV soundmanStill no word on kidnapped French TV soundman
The Paris-based media rights group Reporters Without Borders said Friday it was "concerned" at what might have become of a French television soundman who was abducted in the Gaza Strip last weekend. The group said in a statement its concern has been mounting steadily ever since Mohammed Ouathi, a soundman working for the French TV station France 3, was abducted by three armed men outside his hotel in Gaza City late Sunday. It noted that five other foreigners who were kidnapped in the Gaza Strip in the past two months were quickly released. "So Ouathi's case seems worrying, especially in view of the current climate of insecurity and impunity in Gaza," said the statement.
Maybe word is out that kidnapping French people is lucrative business?

France paid millions of dollars for the release of three journalists kidnapped in Iraq and its foreign intelligence service now knows the identity of the abductors.
