Augustine Fonka Awa, governor of Cameroon’s Far North Region, told Reuters that “French special forces came in yesterday from N’Djamena to help with the investigation. They left yesterday and came back today,”
He however declined to say how many French military arrived from their regional base in Chad’s capital, which is about 40 miles (60 km) from where the French tourists were taken.
The kidnappings are thought to be in retaliation for the recent French intervention in Mali.
