Four French journalists held hostage in Syria for nearly a year arrived in France on Sunday after they were found abandoned in no-man's land on the Turkish border. A plane carrying Edouard Elias, Didier Francois, Nicolas Henin and Pierre Torres touched down at a military base in northern France early Sunday, the president's office said. They will be taken by helicopter to the Villacoublay air base southwest of Paris, where they will be met by President Francois Hollande and their families and colleagues. Turkish soldiers found them overnight Friday to Saturday in no-man's land on the border with Syria, wearing blindfolds and with their hands bound.
