A 67-year-old French woman was kidnapped on Monday in the capital of the Central African Republic where she was carrying out humanitarian work, the French presidency said.
"France condemns this act... and calls for those responsible to free our compatriot as soon as possible," the presidency said in a statement, adding the French embassy in Bangui was in constant contact with the archbishopric which was holding talks with the kidnappers.
