ROME, Sept 8 (Reuters) - Italian journalist Domenico Quirico, kidnapped in Syria in early April, has been freed, the foreign ministry in Rome said on Sunday.
Quirico, a veteran reporter for La Stampa daily with long experience reporting on conflicts in Africa and the Middle East, entered Syria on April 6 but disappeared four days later.
He spoke briefly by phone to his wife in June confirming he had been kidnapped but said he was in good health.
