BEIRUT: A 55-year-old merchant was snatched at gunpoint Monday outside his business in east Lebanon, security sources said.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said three gunmen kidnapped Ahmad Diab Abu Hasan as he was parking his Mercedes-Benz in front of his business in the town of Jlala, near Chtaura, at 8:00 a.m.

Security forces made up of police and the Lebanese Army are in pursuit of the kidnappers who fled in a Cherokee with dark-tinted windows, the sources added.

Abu Hasan’s abduction comes less than a week after Lebanese business owner Fadi Mitri was kidnapped in the Metn town of Mansourieh.

Mitri, 46, was released over the weekend after a $75,000 ransom was paid.
