Paris: Two French journalists kidnapped in Syria three months ago are alive, President Francois Hollande has said.

"We are doing everything to release them, but making contacts to release them is a very long process," Xinhua quoted the president as telling private channel TF1.

Journalist Didier Francois and freelance photographer Edouard Elias working for local broadcaster Europe1 were kidnapped in June when they were en route to Aleppo in Syria.
