Rebels Take Syrian Nuns

My story, Rebel group demands trade for Syrian nuns, was published back on Dec. 12, but I haven’t had time to post until now.

Syrian rebel group Ahrar Al-Qalamoun Brigade took responsibility for the recent abduction of 12 nuns and three civilians from the ancient Christian village of Maaloula, while conflicting reports cast uncertainty over whether the nuns were abducted or evacuated.

The group, which has close ties to Al-Qaeda-affiliated Al-Nusra Front, demanded the release of 1,000 female detainees in exchange for the nuns’ release, according to Asharq Al-Awsat. It also demanded the government end its siege on certain areas of Syria, including the Ghouta district of Damascus.
