Islamist fighters who seized dozens of Fijian soldiers serving as UN peacekeepers on the Golan Heights last week are demanding that their group be removed from a global terrorism list and that compensation be paid for members killed in fighting, the head of Fiji's army said on Tuesday.

 

Brigadier-General Mosese Tikoitoga said negotiations had been stepped up betweenh the Al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front and a new UN negotiation team now in place in Syria.

 

"The rebels are not telling us where the troops are, but they continue to reassure us they are being well-looked after," Tikoitoga told media in Suva. "They also told us they are ensuring that they are taken out of battle areas."
