De to franske journalistene som ble bortført i Mali i dag, er drept, bekrefter det franske utenriksdepartementet.

De to hadde akkurat intervjuet et medlem av ei opprørsgruppe da de ble bortført av fire væpnede menn i byen Kidal nord i Mali.

Både en lokal tjenestemann, kilder i den tuaregiske utbrytergruppen MNLA og maliske sikkerhetskilder opplyste tidligere i dag at de to journalistene er drept.

Radio France International (RFI) journalist Claude Verlon is pictured in this undated handout image released to Reuters November 2, 2013. Two French radio journalists were killed by gunmen in northern Mali on Saturday shortly after being abducted in the town of Kidal, French and Malian officials said. The French government confirmed that 58-year old Verlon and Ghislaine Dupont, 51, both journalists at RFI radio, were found dead. Kidal is the birthplace of a Tuareg uprising last year that plunged Mali into chaos, leading to a coup in the capital Bamako and the occupation of the northern half of the country by militants linked to al Qaeda.
