Kidnapped Turkish pilots appear on TV


Two kidnapped Turkish pilots have appeared in a video broadcast by Lebanese television channel LBC, saying they wished they could be at home.

Murat Akpinar and Murat Agca, both Turkish Airlines employees who were kidnapped on Beirut’s airport road on August 9, said they were in good health, but appeared pale and nervous.

Both said in English they wanted to be with their families for Eid al-Adha, the Muslim holiday that began on Tuesday in most of the Islamic world.
