Reporters Without Borders is worried about TV presenter Mohamed Sayeed, who was kidnapped from his home in the southwestern Damascus district of Jaydet Artoz on 20 July. His family has received no word of him since then and no one has claimed responsibility for his abduction. He hosts a current affairs programme on the Syrian state TV station.
Reporters Without Borders urges Sayeed’s kidnappers to release him and points out that news media and journalists – both professional and citizen journalists – should not be targeted by any of the parties in a war or civil war.
