In an exclusive first interview, a freed French Isis hostage has said the British and American prisoners remained as cheerful as possible but that their governments could have done more to save them.

In an exclusive first interview, a freed French Isis hostage has said the British and American prisoners remained as cheerful as possible but that their governments could have done more to save them.

I spent three days this week with Pierre Torres, one of the French hostages who was held captive by Isis in Syria for ten months. He was released last year, a short time before his American and British co-captives were beheaded one by one in a series of gruesome videos. He was among the last people to see them alive.

But in addition, over a series of coffees and walks around Geneva, Torres, a charming and good-humored but rather shy young man of 30, slowly provided additional insights into his time in captivity - his first interview with a non-French journalist.
