In this photo by Eugene Hoshiko, Japan's government spokesman Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga bows toward to Japanese flag prior to a news conference about a hostage crisis involving a Japanese journalist in Syria. The fates of freelance journalist Kenji Goto and a Jordanian military pilot held by the Islamic State group remained unknown Friday after a purported deadline for a possible prisoner swap lapsed with no word from the militants.
