    The French papers are awash in speculation as to what role the French government played in securing the release of the four French journalists who were held by extremists in Syria for 10 months.

    Le Figaro reports on the chaotic scenes from whence the four French journalists were rescued. The French papers - including Libération - speculate on what measures the French government took to secure the release of its citizens.
