Rome, September 9 - Italian journalist Domenico
Quirico told Rome prosecutors Monday he had feared for his life
during his five-month kidnapping in Syria which ended Sunday,
especially at the start.
Quirico, 61, told the prosecutors, who are obliged to treat
the case as a criminal one under Italian law, that he and
Belgian academic Pierre Piccinin were stopped in April by armed
men on two pick-up trucks.
"We were blindfolded for the first few days: I was afraid I
would be killed," said the veteran La Stampa war correspondent.
He said he thought he and Piccinin were held captive by
three rebel groups, alternately.
He confirmed that he was subjected to two mock executions
after two failed escape bids.
