Lebanese media say army forces have freed seven soldiers held by militants from Syria in a border town that was seized by the extremists last week.


The National News Agency says the seven were freed in a military operation on Thursday but provided no further details.


Militants from Syria overran the border town of Arsal on Saturday, seizing Lebanese army posts, soldiers and policemen, and demanding the release of a rebel commander detained in Lebanon.
