There's a movie in this

Kidnappers who have held 14 European tourists hostage in the Sahara desert for the past five months are demanding a ransom of $5.1 million for each one, German television reported on Friday.

The hostages -- nine Germans, four Swiss and one Dutch national -- were among 32 European tourists seized by armed rebels in a remote area of southern Algeria, famous for ancient grave sites but also known for arms and drugs smuggling.


Switzerland has sent a police officer to Mali to join around a dozen Dutch and German experts working on the case.
