The son of herbal expert Zein al-Atat was released on Saturday after mediations were successful with the kidnappers, the National News Agency reported.
NNA said that Ibrahim al-Atat was released on the outskirts of Baalbek.
Al-Atat’s manager denied to LBC that the kidnappers released Ibrahim after paying a ransom.
Ibrahim was kidnapped earlier this month while he was driving his Hummer along with his cousin Mahmoud al-Atat and his friend Wael Abdul Khaleq when four gunmen riding a black Mercedes four-wheeler with tined widows and no license plate blocked his way and whisked him out of his vehicle.
No details were immediately available about the circumstances of the release as the motive remains unknown.
