This war in Syria is now more than five years old and along with civilians, several journalists have been captured and killed in the country. Today, the story of one who survived. Theo Padnos thought he had hired guides to take him over the Turkish border into Syria. He wanted to write stories about the people living on the outskirts of the war. But his guides were actually members of a militant group. They kidnapped him and sold him to Jabhat al Nusra. That’s what Al Qaeda is called in Syria. A new film, Theo Who Lived, tells his story.
