(Undated) -- An American journalist is a free man after nearly two years of captivity in Syria. Peter Curtis was released Sunday after he had been abducted in Turkey in 2012 while on his way to the Syrian border. Curtis has been handed over to a U.N representative just days after the beheading of fellow journalist James Foley, but it is still unclear who is claiming responsibility for Curtis' capture. According to the Committee to Protect Journalists, at least 67 journalists have been killed in Syria since the start of the ISIS uprising.
