Three Spanish journalists have gone missing in Syria and are believed to have been kidnapped, according to the Spanish press association FAPE.
The three men, Antonio Pampliega, Jose Manuel Lopez and Angel Sastre, were working in the northern city of Aleppo.
They have not been heard from since shortly after entering Syria via Turkey on 10 July.
In August 2014, the jihadist group Islamic State decapitated US journalist James Foley, who was seized in northern Syria in 2012.
Three other Spanish journalists were kidnapped in 2013 while covering the conflict in Syria, where various armed factions are battling President Bashar Al-Assad\’s regime and each other.
Syria\’s conflict, which began in 2011 with anti-government protests, has degenerated into a civil war that has killed more than 230,000 people and displaced millions.
