ANKARA - Two Turkish journalists missing in Syria are alive and have been handed over to Syrian government authorities, a Turkish deputy prime minister said, and Ankara is working to secure their release.

There has been no contact with Adem Ozkose, who works for the Milat newspaper, and cameraman Hamit Coskun for a week since they traveled to the Syrian city of Idlib, the scene of heavy fighting between the Syrian army and insurgent forces."News has been received that they are alive, but are in the hands of officials on the side of the Syrian regime," Turkish media quoted Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc as saying.
