American held in Syria for almost two years is released

(CNN) — American Peter Theo Curtis, who was held hostage for nearly two years by Islamist rebels in Syria, was released Sunday.

“Particularly after a week marked by unspeakable tragedy, we are all relieved and grateful knowing that Theo Curtis is coming home after so much time held in the clutches of (al-Nusra Front),” U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said in a statement, referring to a Syrian rebel group with ties to al Qaeda.

The United States was not involved in negotiations for his release but was aware of private efforts to secure the release, two U.S. law enforcement officials said. It’s not known whether any ransom was paid, the officials said.
