Kidnapped South African photojournalist Shiraaz Mohamed is pleading for help to secure his release.
A video of him has surfaced on social media asking the South African government for assistance.
Mohamed's also appealing to negotiators, such as doctor Fekri Shabaan, to cooperate with his captors or else they'll kill him.
Mohamed was kidnapped while accompanying humanitarian group, the Gift of the Givers, into Syria to document their efforts to assist refugees.
The group hasn't been involved in negotiations since June after Mohamed's family sought alternative help.
