Lebanon holds 7 over Syria abductions

A supporter of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad during a demonstration in the southern Lebanese city of Nabatiyeh, to celebrate the anniversary of Syria's ruling Baath Party on April 8, 2012Seven people suspected of abducting members of Syria’s opposition in Lebanon and turning them over to the Damascus regime have been arrested, a security official said on Monday. The seven, all members of the Baath party that has ruled Lebanon’s neighbour for 50 years, were detained last week, the official told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity. Among them was a Baath “official” from the Bekaa region of eastern Lebanon bordering Syria. He confessed to having kidnapped a member of the Syrian rebel group Ahrar al-Sham, and is also suspected of abducting a Syrian opposition member more than a month ago in eastern Lebanon and a sheikh he handed over to the Syrian authorities.
