Abducted American Journalist Released from Syria

Just days after the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) last Tuesday released a video of the horrific decapitation of American journalist James Foley in Syria, an American journalist was released from the war-torn state.

The journalist, Peter Theo Curtis, was abducted in Antakya, Turkey in October 2012, whereas Foley was kidnapped in Syria in November of that year.
