#Lebanon: #Syria - Terrorists To Free Lebanese Hostages 'When New State Is Established'

Syrian rebels warned they would free 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims taken hostage when their country establishes a new “civil state.” The pilgrims will be released “by the Syrian civil state when their case is reviewed by a new democratic parliament,” said a written statement in a video shown on Al Jazeera television. Some of the hostages in Syria's northern Aleppo province were shown saying that they were healthy and were treated like guests, Reuters said. The rebels said that it may be possible to negotiate the release with neighboring countries.
