A Day Without News?

We are delighted to share the news that four French journalists, kidnapped in Syria over 10 months ago, have been released.

Nicolas Hénin, Pierre Torres, Edouard Elias and Didier François were found safe and well on the Turkish border.

A plane carrying the four from Turkey touched down at a military base in northern France early Sunday where they were transferred by helicopter to Villacoublay air base southwest of Paris and met by President Francois Hollande.

Our very best wishes to them and to their families.

February 22nd 2014, marks the one year anniversary of A Day Without News? and two years since the deaths of our colleagues Marie Colvin and Remi Ochlik in Homs, Syria. 

 

It was their deaths at the hands of the Syrian Authorities that inspired us to launch the campaign to lobby for more support for our colleagues.

We set three objectives and with your support and that of our community we have achieved a great deal in just one year.

We ask you to continue to help us raise awareness and support our goal to end impunity and bring perpetrators to justice.

Register your support here.

Our thanks to our colleagues at CPJ and RSF
