Not a Syrian in sight. This wasn’t what I had expected…Two of them were so Anglicised they couldn’t speak Arabic.”
John Cantile, British journalist freed from capture in Syria
A British photographer who was captured by insurgents in Syria has said that his captors were foreign extremists including several Britons with “not a Syrian in sight”.
On July 19, freelance photographer John Cantile, alongside his Dutch colleague Jeroen Oerlemans, was kidnapped in northern Syrian and freed one week later.
Cantile said he was held in a camp by 30 foreign extremists including some from Britain and Pakistan. He also revealed that some of his captors were “young men with south London accents”.
“Not a Syrian in sight. This wasn't what I had expected”, Cantile added. “Two of them were so Anglicised they couldn't speak Arabic”.http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/08/06 ... re-syrian/
