Video of Estonian Citizens Abducted in Lebanon Sent to Foreign Ministry


No. 141-E

Last night a video clip was sent to the Foreign Ministry of the seven Estonian citizens abducted in Lebanon. Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that the sending of the video clip is a sign that somebody is interested in initiating contact.

From the video it appears that all seven abducted Estonian citizens are alive and well. However, it is not known when the clip was recorded.

The message did not include the conditions of the victims’ release, any demands, or information on who is behind the abduction.

Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that the crisis commission will continue to work together with all the relevant establishments and international partners until this situation is resolved. Co-operation is also ongoing with nations in the Middle East and with our European Union and NATO partners.
