BEIRUT - Kidnappers in Lebanon have released a Saudi Arabian man whose abduction was announced by Riyadh last week, Lebanon's National News Agency reported on Wednesday.

The case comes during a diplomatic crisis between Lebanon and Saudi Arabia.

"The kidnapped Saudi ... was released. He was handed over to the Lebanese army intelligence," the agency reported.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain have advised their citizens against travelling to Lebanon and urged those already there to leave as tensions have risen.
