    A video of what appears to be the French family of seven taken hostage by a suspected Nigerian Islamist group in Cameroon last week has been posted on YouTube.

    One of the male adult hostages speaking in the video claims they were captured by Nigeria's Boko Haram militants. The group is reported to be demanding the release of several prisoners jailed in Nigeria and Cameroon.
