Five Czech nationals abducted in east Lebanon over the summer in a case believed to be tied to the detention of a Lebanese man in Prague were released Monday, security sources and the Czech foreign ministry said.Fayyad had been arrested at the behest of U.S. authorities who are seeking to have him extradited over allegations of arms and drug trafficking.Their release comes on the same day a Lebanese newspaper reported that the abductors of the five Czechs were seeking to swap them for Ali Fayyad.The five Czechs include a lawyer hired by the Fayyad family who was working toward his release, a translator, two journalists, and a security official.The Lebanese security body then tasked Fayyad with revealing the entire plan, but he was arrested before he could deliver.
