Video shows the NBC crew before their release. In the clip the six-man crew -- a German, two Britons, two Americans and a Turk -- plead with their respective governments to help secure their freedom.

"My name is Richard Engel, I'm a correspondent with NBC News. I would like to urged the United States government to do what it can to secure our release and to cease its activities in Syria."
The graffiti on the right wall has a Shia slogan. It says "There is no chivalrous man except 'Ali [a figure revered in Shiaism], and there is no sword except Dhu l-Fiqar ['Ali's mythical sword]."
Graffiti on the left wall is a well-known pro-Assad slogan, and reads: "Assad, or we burn the whole country!"
Fortunately for Engel and his crew they were successfully rescued by Syrian opposition fighters, who posted their own video
And thanks to Guardian Mario for this panorama of the above video
