ISIS Reportedly Kidnaps 300 Syrian Workers
The reign of terror continues. Militants believed to be affiliated with the infamous terrorist group have taken hundreds of people hostage at the al-Badiyeh Cement Company about 30 miles north of Damascus. The numbers aren’t certain — one local official said only about 125 people had been loaded onto buses that were headed for secure ISIS territory — and some even say the militants were unaffiliated with ISIS. Now officials say they’re making unspecified inroads through anonymous contacts in an attempt to secure freedom for the workers.
