Spanish journalists kidnapped in Syria

TWO Spanish journalists have been kidnapped in Syria by a group linked to Al Qaeda.

Javier Espinosa, who works for El Mundo, and freelance photographer Ricardo Garcia Vilanova were seized in Raqqa, near the country’s northern border.

Although the two were taken by radical group Isis at a checkpoint on September 16, the paper did not release details while it initially communicated with the group.

It has yet to receive any demands.
