'I thought they were going to take me outside and execute me': NBC correspondent Richard Engel recounts terrifying kidnap in Syria as he is freed after five days
NBC News chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel has revealed how he thought he was going to be led outside and executed by Syrian captors who held him and his production team for five days.
The prominent journalist, 39, was entering Syria from Turkey on Thursday with two crew members and their security guard when they were abducted, thrown into the back of a truck and blindfolded.
They were taken to an unknown location and kept blindfolded and bound, but on Monday, they were released after a firefight with Syrian rebels at a checkpoint and have now re-entered Turkey.
