From Ellen LaVan Schindler:

Here are a few earlier pieces from US sources:
But, it’s interesting that the only current source on this story seems to be Al Jazeera.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
