Florence Aubenas & Hussein Hanoun freed

I started this blog with the translation of a poem by Moroccon poet Abdellatif Laâbi for the French journalist Florence Aubenas who, together with her Iraqi guide Hussein Hanoun, had been kidnapped in Baghdad. Yesterday both were finally released after 157 days of detainment, Aubenas being flown back to France while Hussein Hanoun was reunited with his family in Iraq.

for full French details go to today’s Libération (the paper Aubenas works for):
Or else check the NYT’s coverage:
