The seven Estonian men who were kidnapped four months ago in eastern Lebanon were freed in the Bekaa Valley on Thursday, Lebanese Daily Star reported.

Lebanon's Interior Minister Marwan Charbel told reporters that the Estonians were in "good health," and had showered and eaten a meal. The seven men appeared briefly on one of the French embassy's balconies.

Lebanese Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour confirmed the release of the abducted men, who were kidnapped shortly after entering Lebanon through the Syrian border, Daily Star said.
