El Mundo correspondent Javier Espinosa is greeted by his son as he arrives at the military airbase in Torrejon de Ardoz, near Madrid, on March 30, 2014.

Espinosa and Vilanova were seized on September 16 as they tried to cross the Syrian border to Turkey, the latest of scores of journalists captured while covering Syria’s civil war.
