It’s been almost a month since the Lebanese security forces announced that they located the seven kidnapped Estonian tourists and that their release should be very soon [Link]. My first reaction to this news was that how come the police is spreading all over the news that they found the kidnappers?

I mean unless they have them cornered with no way to run, the kidnappers could have easily heard the news and fled the scene to a neighbouring and very welcoming country. If that’s the case, then our security officials are almost indirectly responsible now for anything that happens to them.

A video was broadcasted few days ago showing the Estonians begging for help [Naharnet]. May God be with them.
