BEIRUT: A Turkish national abducted by a Lebanese Shi'ite clan in Beirut was released to security forces on Tuesday, a Reuters witness at the scene said.

The hostage was a Turkish businessman abducted in mid-August, along with around 20 Syrians, to put pressure on rebels in Syria who had seized one of their kinsmen in Damascus. The Turkish national was the last in the group to be released.
