Somali militants with links to al-Qaeda today posted sickening photographs of what they claim is a French soldier killed in Saturday’s failed rescue mission of a fellow countryman held hostage.

Three pictures posted on Twitter show a white man wearing military pants and a blood-soaked shirt surrounded by three guns, ammunition clips and protective gear.

Militant Islamist group al-Shabab taunt the dead man’s religion in their posts writing ‘A return of the crusades, but the cross could not save him from the sword,’ and asking president Francois Hollande if it was ‘worth it’.
