Syria militants post video of kidnapped Lebanese police

Published: Updated:

Miltant group al-Nusra Front has posted a video showing kidnapped Lebanese security personnel calling on the Hezbollah movement to withdraw its fighters from Syria.

The nine men, who appear to be eight Lebanese policemen and a soldier, are among 24 security forces still in the hands of jihadists after fighting erupted on the Syrian border earlier this month.

In the video posted Friday night on Islamist websites, the men are seated in front of a black flag with the logo of al-Nusra, the Syrian affiliate of al-Qaeda.
