Abducted Richard Engel, Crew Freed In Syria

After being held prisoner for five days by unidentified captors, the NBC News team was freed unharmed. Engel said he believes the kidnappers were a Shiite militia group loyal to the Syrian government, which has lost control over swaths of the country’s north and is increasingly on the defensive in a civil war that has killed 40,000 people since March 2011.
