Palestinian journalist missing in Syria

GAZA CITY (Ma'an) -- The brother of a Palestinian journalist said Tuesday that Muhib An-Nawati had gone missing in Syria, and appealed to Palestinian and Syrian authorities to help the family make contact with him.

Mudar An-Nawati said his brother Muhib had left for Syria from Norway on 28 December to do research for a book titled Hamas from the Inside. He had been in touch with his wife and children in Oslo every day until 5 January 2011, Mudar said, after which there was no trace.

His wife had been expecting Muhib to return home on 9 January, but did not check in for his flight. Between the 5th and the 9th, his brother said, his sister-in-law had had no luck reaching him on his mobile phone, or at the hotel he said he was staying at.

The Palestinian Journalist's Syndicate issued a statement on the disappearance, calling on President Mahmoud Abbas, the International Federation of Journalists, and Arab Journalist Federation to make all possible efforts to reveal the whereabouts of An-Nawati, who is a member of the PJS.
