Families of kidnapped Iranians hold demo

Families of kidnapped Iranians hold demo
IRAN  - The families of seven Iranian engineers abducted by Syrian rebels have gathered in front of Iran's Majlis, demanding the release of their next of kin.


Carrying banners that read "Free Iranian engineers," the abductees' immediate family members gathered in front of the Majlis on Tuesday and called on Iranian lawmakers to pursue the fate of their loved ones.

Five Iranian electrical engineers were kidnapped on December 21, 2011 after a group of unknown gunmen attacked their convoy in the Syrian city of Homs.

They were on their way to work at the city's Jandar power plant, which has been under construction by Iranian technicians for the past two years.

Two more Iranian specialists, who were trying to determine the fate of the engineers, were also nabbed, and there has been no immediate report on their whereabouts.

The kidnappers are believed to be affiliated with the terrorist "Free Syrian Army."

Syria has been experiencing unrest since mid-March 2011.

Damascus says "outlaws, saboteurs and armed terrorist groups" are responsible for the unrest, which is being orchestrated from abroad.
