Washington: Two Sky News Arabia reporters have reportedly gone missing in the city of Aleppo in northern Syria.

Press freedom advocate groups believe that since Syrian uprising in March 2011, the country has become the most dangerous place in the world for journalists.

According to ABC News, Sky News Arabia said that it lost contact with the team including reporter Ishak Moctar, cameraman Samir Kassab along with their Syrian driver on Tuesday.

Sky News Arabia Chief Nart Bouran said that the crew was on assignment primarily to focus on the humanitarian aspects of the conflict in Aleppo.

The report said that dozens of journalists have been kidnapped and more than 25 have been killed while reporting in Syria since the conflict began two years back.
