BEKAA, Lebanon: Seventy-three-year old Ali Ahmad Mansour was released over the weekend in east Lebanon after a $600,000 ransom was paid, security sources said Monday.

The sources told The Daily Star that Mansour, a financier from the Bekaa Valley, east Lebanon, was released Sunday evening.

However, his captors, only received $600,000 of the requested $15 million ransom, the sources added.

They said police and Lebanese soldiers were in pursuit of the kidnappers.

Interior Minister Marwan Charbel has said that Lebanese Army Intelligence units arrested suspects believed to be behind Mansour’s kidnapping in house raids in the Bekaa’s Brital area Friday.
