A Times reporter has been shot and a photographer badly beaten in Syria after they were double-crossed by the people charged with providing them safe passage across the border, the newspaper has reported.
Anthony Loyd was shot twice in the leg, while photographer Jack Hill was assaulted after he tried to escape from their captors in Tall Rifat, near the Turkish border.
They had been attempting to return to Turkey with a local fixer and bodyguards after a three-day assignment in the ruined city of Aleppo when their car was forced off the road, the newspaper said.
The paper said they identified their captors as men charged with providing them with safe passage to the border.
After the fixer and Mr Hill tried to escape, Mr Loyd was shot to prevent him trying to do the same.
The paper said that they were released after the Islamic Front, an anti-extremist rebel group, confronted the gang. After Mr Loyd was treated in a local hospital, the pair and their fixer made it across the border to Turkey.
The Times' Anthony Loyd has said that the victims of the alleged Syrian chemical attack were reportedly "frothing at the mouth".
He told ITV News: "The video shot by medical staff [in the immediate minutes after the alleged attack] shows some of the symptoms of repetitive twitching of limbs, semi-conscious trance state, dilated pupils, foaming at the mouth and nose."
The Times' Anthony Loyd has today reported on the alleged use of chemical weapons by Syrian forces.
He told ITV News that in "all likelihood" chemical weapons were used by the Assad regime.
He added: "I say on the balance of probability, logic and likelihood that it was a chemical shell fired by the regime that crashed in to a rebel held area and gassed people to death"

Just last week, he met with other national newspaper editors to discuss a new regulation system for the industry:
Harding paid tribute to staff and praised the paper's investigative journalism, campaigns and foreign reporting. He will be missed.
Not in office today. But I've bloody loved working for James Harding. Gutted.

As well as being a great editor, JH was a passionate advocate of The Times Spelling Bee - one of my favourite projects here. All very sad.
