FNCers Kidnapped In Gaza: Shep Hints At Resolution; “We Have Been Led To Believe” That They “Have Not Been Harmed”

At the end of Wednesday’s On The Record, Greta Van Susteren asked Shep Smith if there have been any updates on the kidnapping. Smith said:

Olaf Wiig, a freelance photographer who has worked for Fox News for sometime, and our national correspondent, Steve Centanni, as many of our viewers know, both taken in Gaza by armed, hooded gunmen, a number of days ago. Actually on monday. There’s been no official word on their condition, though there have been calls throughout the Arab world for their release. We have kept the information to just the facts as we know them for reasons which I’m sure are clear to our viewers. Most often when journalists are captured within Gaza, they are returned within 24, 48 hours. That has not the case here, though there are indications of some kind that this may in fact resolve itself. And we have been led to believe now that Steve Centanni and Olaf Wiig have not been harmed in any way. It’s our hope that we’ll all be seeing them again very soon, Greta.”
