BEIRUT: A Palestinian national kidnapped in Lebanon last week was released Wednesday, after a ransom of 100 thousand dollars was paid to the kidnappers, the National News Agency reported.
The identity of the captors is still not known.
Palestinian Mohammad Jaber was kidnapped in the Baalbek village of Khraybeh Tuesday, its mayor told police.
Jaber was allegedly looking at property he had recently purchased in the outskirts of the village when three masked men stepped out of a vehicle and snatched him at gun point.
A security source said Jaber was a Beirut resident and had traveled to Khraybeh to inspect the land in Wadi al-Wardeh.
