There is now uncertainty over the news that seven French hostages kidnapped in Cameroon have been freed.

A French minister had initially confirmed the reports but later changed his position and a Cameroonian minister has now denied it.

On Tuesday the family of three adults and four children were taken from a national park in the Dabanga area close to the border with Nigeria, by six gunmen on three motorbikes.
