U.S. Journalist in Syria Has Family Worried After Communication is Cut
Washington Post/AP – The family of Austin Tice, an American freelance journalist who has contributed coverage from Syria for The Washington Post and other news organizations, said Thursday that it has not heard from him for more than a week and is concerned for his welfare.
Tice, 31, a Georgetown University law student who previously served as an infantry officer in the Marine Corps, reported from Syria this summer. His work, which has been published by The Post, McClatchy Newspapers and other outlets, has offered vivid and insightful accounts of the civil war.
