Japanese journalist Jumpei Yasuda, who is seen in this photo sent by e-mail to a Kyodo News photographer on June 23, 2015 before Yasuda's departure to Syria, with the message reading, "I will smuggle myself into Syria from now", is seen in this undated photo released by Kyodo on December 24, 2015. A video surfaced on March 17, 2016 appearing to show the missing Japanese journalist, reportedly held by an al Qaeda affiliate in Syria, reading a message to his family and country. Reuters could not verify the video and could not reach Yasuda's family. Mandatory credit REUTERS/Kyodo less
