Ransom demanded for kidnapped Estonians

A ransom has been requested to ensure the release of seven Estonians who were kidnapped in the Bekaa Valley last month.

The seven men were kidnapped while walking in the Bekaa Valley after entering Lebanon through Syria.

They were taken away at gunpoint according to locals.

A Lebanese group that carried out the kidnapping has now demanded an unspecified ransom for their release.

The ransom request was made in an email to the local current affairs website, Lebanon Files.

A group called Haraket Al-Nahda Wal-Islah has claimed responsibility for the kidnappings.
