The 6 French aid workers (awkward turn of phrase, for sure) have, as suspected, been turned over
to French authorities and will be leaving Chad. Still technically guilty of the charges against
them, the workers will still need to be dealt with by the French legal system. They won't be doing
hard labor, but will they be released outright?
Since guessing only counts if you do it before the fact, here's mine: Yes.
