    (ANSAmed) - ROME, JANUARY 15 - The body of the French hostage killed by the jihadist group Jund Al-Khalifa in September, Hervé Gourdel, has been found by Algerian armed force in the Kabylie city of Tizi Ouzou, according to media reports.

    A magistrate and the prosecutor went to the location in the Takhlijit forest, a source told the TSA website, noting that the body would be examined to verify whether it was actually that of the French mountaineering guide. Jund Al-Khalifa, initially a faction of Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (ISIS) shortly before the beheading of the Frenchman.(ANSAmed).
