4 abducted last year now free

Ten months after their capture in Syria, four French journalists crossed the border into neighboring Turkey and reached freedom Saturday, though dozens more remain held in the country's chaotic civil war.

Edouard Elias, Didier Francois, Nicolas Henin, and Pierre Torres - all said to be in good health - were freed in unclear circumstances in what has become the world's most dangerous, and deadliest, conflict for journalists. It wasn't clear whether a ransom had been paid, nor which group in Syria's chaotic three-year-old conflict held the men. - AP
