FREED SPANISH JOURNALISTS FLOWN HOME

0

MADRID: Two Spanish journalists taken hostage in Syria by an Al-Qaeda-linked group returned smiling to Spain on Sunday (Monday in Manila) to greet their loved ones after six months in captivity. El Mundo correspondent Javier Espinosa, 49, and freelance photographer Ricardo Garcia Vilanova, 42, landed at a military airbase near Madrid from Turkey. Looking tired and drawn but happy, they appeared briefly before the cameras at the offices of El Mundo newspaper, Espinosa’s employer, and hugged relatives and colleagues.
