BEIRUT - Nine Lebanese citizens held in Syria since May 2012 have been released, Lebanese Interior Minister Marwan Charbel told Reuters on Friday.

Eleven Lebanese Shi'ites were seized last year by a Syrian rebel group while on their way home from a pilgrimage to Shi'ite religious sites in Iran, their families said. Two were later released.
