French hostage escapes in Somalia, officials say

Somali officials say one of two French security advisers kidnapped by insurgents last month has escaped from his captors.
The assistant information secretary of the presidential palace, Abdulkadir Hussein Wehliye, said the man is in the presidential palace Wednesday and "in a good mood."
The French men were abducted in July from a hotel in Mogadishu, the capital of Somalia. They were in the country to train Somali government forces, which are fighting Islamist militiamen.
Foreigners rarely travel to Somalia, which is among the most dangerous countries in the world.
