0

ABU DHABI: Television channel Sky News Arabia said on Thursday it had lost contact with its crew on assignment in the north Syria province of Aleppo, where abductions have been on the rise. The Abu Dhabi-based channel said in a statement that reporter Ishak Moctar, a Mauritanian national, Lebanese cameraman Samir Kassab and a Syrian driver it did not name at his family’s request have been missing since Tuesday. It appealed to “all concerned parties” to help it locate its team and support “any effort ensuring their safe return.” Media watchdog Reporters Without Borders says at least 16 foreign journalists are missing in Syria, although many cases have not been made public at the request of their families.
