Families of captive Lebanese plea for release

Relatives of Lebanese Shia pilgrims, kidnapped by rebel group in Syria, push government for action.

    Last year 11 Lebanese Shia pilgrims were kidnapped in Syria on their way back to Lebanon.

    Since then, different mediation efforts have led to the release of two of them.

    The families of those remaining in captivity are fed up, however, and are trying new tactics to pressure the Lebanese government to get their loved ones back.
