Release of Spanish hostages by AQMI “a lesson for French secret services”

In this morning’s El Pais, an interview with the mediator who oversaw the release of two Spanish hostages held by Al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQMI). He says France’s approach in a raid targeting AQMI last month put the lives of all the hostages in danger and could have led to the death of the two Spaniards as well as Frenchman Michel Germaneau who perished at the hands of the terrorist group. This and other stories in today’s international press review: TUESDAY, 24th AUGUST 2010
