Swedish hostage in Mali still alive

A 36-year-old Swedish man who has been held hostage by an al-Qaeda affiliated group in Mali, is alive and doing well considering the circumstances, news agency TT reports.

This is the first sure sign that the man is still alive since December last year, when the group published pictures of him and the other hostages.
