Supporters gather to mark 500 days since French hostages' capture
Friends, colleagues and relatives have held a rally in Paris to mark the 500th day of Hervé Ghesquière and Stéphane Taponier's captivity in Afghanistan. The France Télévisions journalists were kidnapped along with three Afghan colleagues in December 2009. Despite efforts to raise awareness of their plight, there's been no news of them in six months.
