A Turkish reporter working for the NBC TV news network is said to have been missing in Syria since Wednesday, Turkish media reported on Monday.
Turkey’s NTV news channel reported that Turkish correspondent for NBC, Aziz Akyavas, went missing in Syria and has not been reached for four days.
Along with Akyavas, NBC is unable to reach its Middle East bureau chief Richard Engel, who was also reporting from inside Syria.
This guy had balls of steel. I remember seeing a Charlie Rose interview with him a couple years back and he said his wife left him over his assignments in the Middle East. He loved it so fucking much he couldn't accept her ultimatum to return and do reports from a studio. He had to be in the thick of it.
Well, I'd leave too - some bitch telling me NOT to do my work, f-u-bitch ...
""They were talking openly about their loyalty to the government," Engel said. He said the captors were trained by the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and allied with Hezbollah, the Lebanese Shiite militant group, but he did not elaborate."
