3 Spanish journalists kidnapped in Syria freed


MADRID: Three Spanish journalists kidnapped in Syria some 10 months ago were freed on Saturday and are due to fly home from Turkey, the Spanish Press Federation and the government said. The trio, who had been working for various Spanish media around the time of their disappearance, was last seen in July 2015 in the northwestern city of Aleppo where they had been reporting on fighting. “All three have been released, Antonio Pampliega, Jose Manuel Lopez and Angel Sastre, and are on their way (to Spain),” said Elsa Gonzalez, president of the Spanish Press Federation (FAPE).
