Biden says U.S. knows that Syria is holding Austin Tice, again calls for journalist’s release

This week marks a decade since Austin Tice was abducted in Damascus, Syria. President Biden says the U.S. knows with certainty that he is being held by the Syrian regime. Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has not acknowledged that his government detained Tice. Tice is one of the longest held American hostages in the world, Vice President Biden said in a statement. Biden: "We stand with Austin’s many loved ones and we will not rest until we bring Austin home"
