An Italian journalist and a Belgian national who were kidnapped in Syria in April have returned to Europe after being freed.
La Stampa reporter Domenico Quirico and teacher Pierre Piccinin da Prata landed in Rome, where they were met by Italy’s Foreign Minister Emma Bonino.
It is believed the pair were together when they were seized but details of who was behind their abduction remain unclear.
Quirico had entered Syria from Lebanon on April 6 and went missing three days later while travelling to the city of Homs.
