Report ranks Lebanon sixth in kidnapping risk
A+ A-

BEIRUT: An annual international report released Friday ranked Lebanon sixth for countries where the risk of kidnapping is high. 

The report was prepared by Control Risks, an independent global risk consultancy firm specializing in helping organizations manage political and security risks in complex and hostile environments. 

According to the report: “A large number of cases continued to be reported in the Middle East, fueled by the unstable security environment created by the Syrian civil war.” 

It added: “Kidnapping-for-ransom has become a common problem in Syria and Lebanon, with Lebanon ranking sixth in Control Risks’ global top 10 in 2013.” Mexico, India, Nigeria, Pakistan and Venezuela occupied the first five ranks, while Iraq and Syria were in the 10th and 11th respectively. 

Yemen, Libya and Egypt occupied the 13th, 14th and 15th ranks respectively.
