Portraits of mountain guide Frenchman Herve Gourdelin are seen as people pay tribute in Saint-Martin-Vesubie, September 25, 2014. Algerian militants beheaded French tourist Herve Gourdel, who was kidnapped by gunmen on Sunday in what the group said was a response to France's action against Islamic State militants in Iraq. In a video released by his captors on Wednesday, Gourdel, a 55-year-old from Nice, is seen kneeling with his arms tied behind his back before four masked militants who read out a statement in Arabic criticizing France's intervention.
