NBC News Correspondent Richard Engle Missing in Syria

Richard Engel

Turkish news is reporting that NBC News Senior Correspondent Richard Engel has been missing in Syria since Thursday. Turkish journalist Aziz Akyava? is also missing.

Engel has been one of the few western journalists reporting from within Syria. NBC is not commenting at this time.

As Alexander Abad-Santos notes at The Atlantic Wire, Twitter has pretty much rendered the news blackouts previously observed by news agencies when journalists went missing a thing of the past.
