Lebanese Released in Baalbek after 3-Day Kidnapping Ordeal


A Lebanese man who was kidnapped in the Baalbek area of Hortaala three days ago, has been released, the state-run National News Agency reported on Monday.

NNA said Khaled al-Nashar was set free by his kidnappers after the mediation of the region’s clans.

The agency said Saturday that the man was abducted by armed men riding four-wheelers after he was involved in a drug feud.

Al-Nashar hails from the North but is a resident of Hortaala. He is married to a woman from the town’s al-Masri family.

On Sunday, an Iraqi was abducted in the area of Dohat Aramoun.

Wael Mohammed al-Jabouri, who owns residential buildings in the area, was kidnapped after the assailants claimed they wanted to buy an apartment.
