Kabul: The Taliban have released a video of two French journalists kidnapped in Afghanistan in December.

The video was posted on a Web site and the link was provided by Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid. On it the two journalists plead for their release.

The pair disappeared Dec. 30 along with two or three Afghan employees while traveling in Kapisa province northeast of Kabul. French soldiers in the region are fighting the Taliban and other insurgents as part of NATO`s mission in Afghanistan.

Last month, French President Nicolas Sarkozy confirmed the two were alive and healthy. He said France is doing everything possible to secure their release.
