NBC’s Richard Engel ‘Detained by Pro-Russian Militia in Crimea’

NBC News reporter Richard Engel was reportedly captured by “pro-Russian militia” forces while reporting on the escalating situation in Ukrainian Crimea.

Engle took to Twitter after his release where he said that he is safe and that he was to be “deported” back to Ukraine.

Story is basically a series of Tweets that I can't copy and paste here. You'll have to go to the link and read:
