Four Italian journalists who were taken hostage in Syria, have been released. They were caught earlier this month as they were preparing a report on the conflict in Syria.
It was the Italian prime minister, Mario Monti, who announced such news. He said that four journalists were released today and are now in Turkey. "I want to thank the task force of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and all state structures efforts that made possible the solution of this problem," said Monti.
Journalists who were released were Amedeo Ricucci, Elio Colavolpe, Andrea Vignali and Susan Dabbous. Journalists disappeared at precisely the moment when they tried to contact with Rome.
