FILE – In this file photo taken on May 24, 2012, Spanish reporters Javier Espinosa, right, and Ricardo Garcia Vilanova, left, pose for a photo during the ceremony of the Miguel Gil journalisms awards in Barcelona, Spain. The two Spanish journalists were freed after being held captive for six months in Syria by a rogue al-Qaida group, the newspaper for which one of the men worked said Sunday March 30, 2014. Espinosa and Vilanova were held since September by the breakaway group, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, who detained them at a checkpoint in the town of Tal Abyad in the eastern province of Raqqa, where the militants dominate. The two were trying to leave Syria at the time. (AP Photo/Joan Borras, file)
