French Aid Worker Held Hostage in Yemen Urges for Release in New Video

A French woman held hostage in Yemen has appealed for her release for the first time in a video that surfaced on Monday. Isabelle Prime, who works as a consultant with ties to the World Bank, was abducted from Yemen's capital, Sana'a in February. She addresses French President Francois Hollande and Yemeni President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi by name, saying, "Please bring me to France fast, because I am really, really tired." Prime appears to be under severe duress, sitting in the desert dressed in a black robe and looking frail and anguished.
