Marcin Suder is already back in the country,” Minister Sikorski informed via his Twitter account on Thursday morning.

Sikorski added that he “categorically” warns against travel to the civil war-torn country.

On 24 July, Suder, working for the Studio Melon photo agency based in Warsaw, was taken hostage by armed Islamist militants in the then rebel-held town of Saraqeb, Idlib province.

The photojournalist, known for volunteering for the most dangerous jobs in the world’s hot spots, was at the offices of an opposition group when armed men raided the building, stole money and computers and kidnapped the photographer.

It has been speculated that the kidnapping was for ransom.

No explanation about how Marcin Suder was released from captivity has been given by Poland’s Foreign Ministry.

In early October, Minister Sikorski said that he was aware that Suder was still alive but refused to give more details.

The Foreign Ministry had set up a special team to work on the journalist’s release.
