It was announced today in Madrid that the Spanish Journalist Mark Margenidas was released. Mark Margenidas was abducted in Hama on 3/9/2013, after stopping at an ISIS checkpoint.
The Spanish newspaper El Periodico, for whom Margenidas works, said that he was currently in Turkey with the company of Spanish officials, and where he was undergoing health checks.
Margenidas spoke to his family and the Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, and told them that he was in a good state.
The newspaper did not mention how he was released, or the conditions of his detention.
It is worth noting that 2013 was a dark year for the freedom of journalists and media workers in Syria. On one side, the Syrian regime committed many violations against them, and on the other hand ISIS did so too. In total, 57 journalists and media activists were killed, among them three foreign journalists, and 44 journalists and media activists were abducted, among them nine foreign journalists.
