Syria: Three Spanish journalist return home after 10 months in captivity
Three Spanish freelance journalists who were kidnapped in Syria last year have arrived in Madrid in apparent good health after nearly 10 months in captivity.
The three men – Antonio Pampliega, Jose Manuel Lopez and Angel Sastre – went missing last July a few days after crossing into Syria from Turkey.
They had gone to the northern city of Aleppo to report on fighting there.
The journalists were greeted by their families and officials on Sunday as they walked off their plane under driving rain at the Torrejon de Ardoz air base on the outskirts of Madrid.
