Jeroen Oerlemans, a Dutch photographer, was abducted on the Turkish-Syrian border last week. He says he was captured by a "jihadi group" consisting of about 100 fighters who said they were fighting a "holy war" in Syria. He say the fighters were not Syrian but from "Africa, Southeast Asia, Central Asia, even the UK".

Oerlemans said he and his captured colleague, British photographer John Cantlie, were freed after what appeared to be the Free Syrian Army intervened.
