2 Spanish Journalists Freed in Syria

A Spanish newspaper says two of its journalists kidnapped last year in Syria have been freed.

El Mundo said Sunday reporter Javier Espinosa and photographer Richard Garcia Vilanova are now in Turkey.

The two were kidnapped in September by the al-Qaida-linked group the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.

No details about the journalists' health or the conditions of their release were made available.

The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists said earlier this month Syria is the most dangerous country in the world for journalists.
