BOSTON (AP) - American journalist Peter Curtis says he's "so touched and moved, beyond all words" by the people who've welcomed him home after he was held hostage in Syria for 22 months.

Curtis was freed over the weekend by the Syrian extremist group al-Nusra Front, and he returned to the U.S. yesterday.

He flew on to Boston last night, where he was reunited with his mother.
