Militants in Iraq have freed French reporters Georges Malbrunot and Christian Chesnot, who were taken hostage on 20 August.
The French foreign ministry confirmed an Arabic TV report that the two men had been set free and said they would return to France on Wednesday.
They were abducted while driving to the city of Najaf and appeared on a video released in October by their captors.
Their captors said they had been freed because of France’s anti-war stance.
