Syria's Al-Qaeda affiliate abducted two of the country's most prominent media activists from a radio station in the northwestern Idlib province Sunday, opposition officials told AFP. "Nusra Front kidnapped at 6:55 a.m. activists Hadi al-Abdallah and Raed Fares in the offices of Fresh FM where they work and live in Kafranbel," said Soner Taleb, head of media at the Syrian National Coalition.Fares, Fresh FM's director, has previously been detained by Nusra fighters, who disapprove of what they term the station's "secular tendency and support of apostates," Taleb said.Nusra fighters then arrested both Fares and Abdallah, the statement said."Raed is the revolution, in all meanings of the word," he said.He had been arrested by Nusra in the past and had survived an assassination attempt two years ago, Buyush said.
