LONDON - Reuters said on Saturday it was concerned for the safety of its photographer Khaled al-Hariri, who has been detained by Syrian authorities for five days.

Hariri, 50, has a condition which needs daily medication. A Syrian national, he was last seen when his wife dropped him off by car near the Reuters bureau in Damascus on Monday morning.A witness has told Hariri's family that he was stopped by two men outside the office and taken away. A Syrian official told the family that he would be released by the authorities if there was "no evidence against him". He gave no details.

"We are deeply concerned about our colleague Khaled al-Hariri, who has been missing in Syria for five days now," Reuters editor-in-chief Stephen Adler said.
