PARIS (AP) -- President Nicolas Sarkozy says a French aid worker seen in an Afghanistan hostage video was released by his captors "minutes ago."
Dany Egreteau, a 32-year-old worker for Solidarite Laique, or Secular Solidarity, was captured by gunmen in Kabul on Nov. 3 as he drove to work with another aid worker who managed to escape.
Sarkozy announced Wednesday that he would be returned to France on Thursday.
