Mourabitoun, a militant group operating in North and the Sahara, led by Algerian militant Mokhtar Belmokhtar, has made no claims as yet for the alleged kidnapping last weekend in northern Mali.

Sophie Petronin. the French-Swiss aid worker, is missing since December 24. Petronin had escaped from being kidnaped by in Gao in 2012 also.
