Three Lebanese truck drivers who were kidnapped at the Nasib crossing on the Syrian-Jordanian borders arrived in Lebanon Tuesday, while one remains in captivity, a truck owner said.As for the Lebanese truckers, 14 were released and 9 of them already entered Lebanon, he said, adding that 140 others were stuck on the Jordanian side of the borders with Saudi Arabia.His numbers contradicted those of a spokesman from the General Security, which is in charge of border control, who had told The Daily Star that a total of 16 truckers entered Lebanon on April 5 and 6 . Ali said more than 120 truck drivers were still stranded at the Jordanian-Saudi border and cannot return home due to the closure of the frontier.
