Freed Lebanese hostage speaks out

One man blames Turkey for ordeal after he and eight others were set free in exchange for two abducted Turkish pilots.

    At least 200 Syrian women jailed by President Bashar al-Assad's regime were supposed to be part of a deal which saw the release of nine Lebanese men who were kidnapped by Syrian rebels last year.

    Details of the release remain unclear, however.

    Two Turkish pilots who were abducted to put pressure on their captors, were also released on the same day.

    Now, as Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from Beirut, one of the freed Lebanese men is now speaking out and blaming Turkey for his ordeal.
