2 Spanish journalists kidnapped in Syria go free

Published: 03.30.14, 18:58 / Israel News

MADRID - Two Spanish journalists who were freed after being kidnapped for more than six months in Syria by a rogue al-Qaeda group flew back home Sunday, Spain's Defense Ministry said.


The El Mundo newspaper reported earlier that its war correspondent Javier Espinosa made contact late Saturday from Turkey, where he and photographer Ricardo Garcia Vilanova were under military protection.


It was not clear whether the journalists had escaped or were released by the extremist Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, which abducted the pair at a checkpoint in northeastern Syria on Sept. 16 as they were trying to leave the country. (AP)
