Freed Lebanese hostages arrive in Beirut

The nine released hostages finally arrived in Beirut after a year and a half in Syria.
A plane with nine Lebanese hostages freed from northern Syria landed safely in Beirut, witnesses said, nearly a year and a half after the men were captured by Syrian rebels near the Turkish border.

Live video on Saturday night from Lebanese television showed a Qatari jet landing at Beirut International Airport and Lebanese officials lining up to greet the men.

Qatari officials negotiated the release of the men in a deal that simultaneously secured the freedom of two Turkish pilots taken in a retaliatory kidnapping in August 2013.
