Syria vs. Reuters

Bad things afoot:

A Reuters journalist of Jordanian nationality has gone missing in strife-torn Syria, the Amman government announced Thursday, saying it was seeking information about his whereabouts.

"The Jordanian consul in Damascus is trying to get information from the Syrian authorities about Suleiman Khalidi of the Reuters bureau in Amman. He went to Damascus but no one heard from him since Tuesday," foreign ministry spokesman Mohammad Kayed told AFP.

Reuters said in a statement that Khalidi was last seen in the Old City of Damascus on Tuesday. "He has not answered his mobile telephone since shortly after 2 p.m. (1200 GMT) on Tuesday," it said.

Also, Reuters photographer Khaled al-Hariri, a Syrian based in Damascus, has not been in contact with colleagues since Monday, the news agency said. Both Khalidi and Hariri have worked for Reuters for more than 20 years.

The Syrian authorities on Monday released two Reuters journalists after detaining them for two days.
