A Syrian national was abducted at gunpoint in Bekaa's al-Marj town, the state-run National News Agency said on Saturday.

“Eight armed men kidnapped Abboud Suleiman al-Sheikh in al-Merj and took him to an unknown destination,” the abductee's brother, Zeid Suleiman al-Sheikh, reported to the police station of the Bekaa's Shtoura town.

He said that the kidnappers later contacted him, asking for a USD 300,000 ransom.

The NNA pointed out that the kidnappers were driving a black Cherokee and a Mercedes car.
