US Reporter Released This Week Arrives Back Home

Peter Theo Curtis, a  U.S. journalist held for nearly two years by an extremist group in Syria and released a few days ago, has now returned to the United States.  The group holding him, the al-Nusra Front, apparently negotiated with the government of Qatar for his release.  Meanwhile, other Islamic extremist groups are still holding other journalists, including Steve Sotloff, whose mother pleaded for his release this week.
