Families of abducted Lebanese servicemen Friday met with the Qatari ambassador to Lebanon to press the case of their loved ones, according to a statement issued the same day.They will later hold a meeting with the Turkish ambassador for the same purpose. Family members of the 25 hostages held a press conference at Beirut's Riad al-Solh area after their meeting with Ambassador Ali Bin Hamad Al-Marri at the embassy in Beirut's Ramlet al-Baida. "The purpose of the meeting was to convey a humanitarian message to the Emir of Qatar (Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani) about our suffering," Hussein Youssef, the father of hostage Mohammad Youssef, told The Daily Star. He described the meeting as "fruitful," expressing hope that the message will be conveyed to the state of Qatar in a "very transparent manner".
