Video of Female Journalist Held Hostage by FSA Emerges

NYT's:

Anhar Kochneva is a Ukrainian reporter and interpreter who is known for defending President Bashar al-Assad on Syrian TV. She was kidnapped outside the city of Homs in early October and is believed to be held by elements of the Free Syrian Army, according to Reporters Without Borders. The group says that she is one of four reporters recently abducted in Syria. This brief video, posted and translated by a pro-government YouTube user, is the first message released since her abduction.
