Three freelance Spanish journalists are believed to be kidnapped in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo.
The journalists identified as Antonio Pampliega, Jose Manuel Lopez and Angel Sastre, went missing since July 12 while they were working on an investigative report in the war-torn city.
Spanish journalists’ federation FAPE said they do not know (if they were together) doing their investigative reports in Aleppo. The trio had entered Syria through Turkey on July 10.
In March 2014, two Spanish journalists were freed in Syria after being detained by ISIS militants for 194 days.
The notorious terror group is in control of large swathes in northeast Aleppo where it fiercely battles with rival Islamic groups including Jabhet al-Nusra, the al-Qaeda Syria branch.
