Snapshots: The world in 24 hours Mar 1

Freed Togolese hostage Alex Kodjo Ahonado (C), accompanied by his two wives, addresses a news conference in Lome after his release, Mar 1, 2011. Ahonado is one of three foreign hostages freed on Friday more than five months after they were kidnapped in Niger and held hostage by al Qaeda's North African wing, officials said. The three were part of a group of seven foreigners seized in the northern Nigerien uranium mining town of Arlit in September in an attack that marked an escalation of the Islamist threat in West Africa's desert regions. There was no news on the fate of the other four French hostages. [Photo/Agencies]
