Jonathan Alpeyrie recalls horrors of being abducted in Syria

French-American photographer Jonathan Alpeyrie was working in Syria when he was abducted by militants in April as he travelled to the south.

"They stopped us, dragged us out of the car, separated us. They blindfolded me, handcuffed me and pretended to execute me with pistols".

Mr. Alpeyrie was held for 81 days before a ransom payment secured his release.

The BBC's Jon Sopel spoke to Jonathan Alepyrie on BBC World News.
