Richard Engel and his NBC production team appear on the Today Show from Antakya, Turkey, having essentially just escaped their five days captive in Syria. Engel details the experiences (including the use of psychological torture by the Shabiha) and how they escaped yesterday during a firefight, saying he’s “very happy that we’re able to do this live shot this morning.”
