Pro-Russian Ukrainian militants are detaining a lot of journalists covering the violence. May they all get home safely.

One day I was watching his reports and then he was taken hostage, even though it was proclaimed he wasn't a hostage of Pro-Russian Ukrainian militants. This is great news that he is safely home. Being a journalist in war torn countries is a very dangerous job, and I hope they get danger pay!
Thanks for the good news Carrie.
