CAMERA Snapshots (no relation) is reporting that Spanish AP photographer Emilio Morenatti was freed either late last night or earlier today. I don't have any details yet, but as soon as I get them, I'll have 'em here!
According to the Associated Press, unnamed gunmen dropped Emilio off at the offices of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The group has not named themselves, or otherwise attempted to take credit for his kidnapping, and officials in the government are labeling them merely as "criminals."
He said the kidnappers held him for about four hours in a small room where a masked man visited him. Later he was dressed as a woman, put in a car and taken to another location.
"They put a bag on my head, and they dressed me up as a woman, as a woman in a long veil," he said.
