Three Spanish journalists have gone missing in Syria for more than a week, the Spanish Journalism Association revealed in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement said that journalists Antonio Pampliega, Jose Manuel Lopez and Angel Sastre entered Syrian territory on 10 July and that contact with them was lost near the embattled city of Aleppo, northern Syria on 12 July.

A spokesman for the Spanish Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that the ministry is aware of the issue and continues to work towards a resolution.
