From Today’s Zaman: Two Turkish journalists missing in Syria for four days

Two Turkish journalists are missing in Syria for four days, state-run Anatolia news agency said.

“Gerçek Hayat” magazine Middle East representative Adem Özköse and camereman Hamit Coşkun went to restive Idlib, a town close to Turkey, a week ago. It is confirmed that the journalists are in Idlib but the magazine can’t reach them for four days.

Since November, eight journalists have been killed while working in Syria, according to the Committee to Protect Journalists. American war reporter Marie Colvin and French photographer Remi Ochlik were killed during a rocket attack Feb. 22 in the city of Homs.

Last week, two French journalists, Edith Bouvier and William Daniels, returned home after an escape from Homs where they were trapped for nine days. British photographer Paul Conroy, who was injured in the attack that killed Colvin and Ochlik, also escaped.
