STOCKHOLM: Authorities say two Swedish journalists who were abducted in Syria in November have been released.
Sweden's Foreign Ministry confirmed Wednesday that writer Magnus Falkehed and photographer Niclas Hammarstrom have been released and are receiving assistance from Swedish diplomats in Beirut.
The two freelance journalists were abducted as they were on their way out of Syria in November.
Swedish authorities wouldn't say who abducted them or how they were set free. But national police spokeswoman Jessica Krasser Fremnell said Swedish police had worked closely with other authorities to secure their release.
Press advocacy groups say Syria has become the most dangerous country in the world for reporters over the past two years, with kidnappings becoming a major threat. - AP
