BEIRUT - Two Saudi Arabian citizens kidnapped and tortured for eight days in Lebanon have been freed and are recovering in hospital, the official Saudi Press Agency said on Wednesday.

The state news agency did not specify when the victims were taken or who abducted them, but quoted the Saudi ambassador to Lebanon, Ali bin Saeed Awadh Asiri, as saying the kidnappers were part of a "gang belonging to an Arab country".

He also warned Saudis to stay away from Lebanon's border areas. Israel borders Lebanon to the south and turmoil-hit Syria is its eastern neighbor.
