Florence Aubenas (born February 6, 1961 in Brusselsmarker) is a Frenchmarker journalist, who worked until 2006 for the French newspaper Libération. She was taken hostage on January 5, 2005, in Iraqmarker along with her translator Hussein Hanoun Al-Saadi.

On March 1, 2005, her captors released a video tape, in which Aubenas asked for help. She spoke English and declared she was in bad health. In the end of the 26-second video, she mentioned the name of Didier Julia. The French authorities and Florence Aubenas' family were given another video (on CD-ROM) a week earlier.

Florence and Hussein were freed on June 11, 2005. France allegedly paid $10 million dollars in ransom for their release.
