Kidnapped Syrian Bishops Still Missing

Ad Feedback

Syrian church officials say two bishops kidnapped in the northern part of the country are still missing. Earlier reports said the bishops had been released, but had to recant when facts proved otherwise.

The two men were taken from their car by gunpoint as they traveled outside the city of Allepo. A relative of one of the men said they were taken by foreign fighters from Chechnya.

One is a Greek Orthodox Bishop and the other is a bishop in the Assyrian Orthodox Church.

Syria's main rebel group condemned the kidnapping and blamed the Assad Regime.
