February 25, 2011

It is with great joy that the AREVA group has learned that Françoise Larribe, spouse of AREVA employee, Daniel Larribe, and Jean-Claude Rakotorilalao and Alex Awando, both employees of VINCI subsidiary, SATOM, have been liberated. They were abducted on September 16th, 2010, in the North of Niger by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.

All our thoughts are with Daniel Larribe and the three VINCI group employees who remain in captivity and for whom everyone wishes the same positive outcome as soon as possible.
