Georgina Boixereu.- Veteran “El Periódico” war correspondent Marc Marginedas was set free the dawn of Sunday, after having spent last six months kidnapped by the jihadist group “Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant” (ISIS).

The kidnappers handed Marginedas on saturday night, and this dawn he has been able to cross Syria’s border and enter Turkey. There is where he is right now, being subject of medical examination to prove he is healthy after all he has gone through. His family has had the occasion to talk to him, so have President of the Government Mariano Rajoy, and Vice-President Soraya Sáenz de Santamaría.

The journalist, in charge of informing about Syria’s war, was kidnapped near Hama city the 4th of September of 2014. His was one of many cases of abducted correspondents in a country that, according to Reporters Without Borders, has become one of the most dangerous in the world to be a journalist.
