the essential Sophie Pétronin, who had been kidnapped in Mali, then released in 2020, went back to live there last March. “I am safe,” she reassures.
Sophie Pétronin first responded to rumors about her potential conversion to Islam. “Everyone proclaimed that I had been converted (…) Where is the problem with my conversion? I have never been converted in my life. Even during the four years of captivity.”
The former hostage also reassured about his living conditions. “Where I am I am safe, well guarded, well protected, well fed. I eat well, drink well, sleep well. I have no problem,” she said.
