Journalists know they are taking their lives in their hands when covering Syria's civil war from the ground. According to the group Reporters Without Borders, 15 disappeared while covering the conflict. Jonathan Alpeyrie was nearly one of them. He was kidnapped and held for 81 days. He was released just two weeks ago, and spoke to Anderson about the ordeal.
