The bodies of two Lebanese youths feared kidnapped were found Thursday dumped near a roadside south of Beirut, police officials said. The bodies of Ziad Qabalan, 25, and Ziad Ghandour, 12, were found by police in Jadra, just north of the southern port city of Sidon, after police earlier Thursday received a phone call informing them of the location where they had been left. Police said the bodies were swollen, suggesting they had been killed for at least 48 hours but did not have immediate word on how they were killed. Qabalan and Ghandour disappeared on Monday after leaving their homes in the West Beirut district of Wata al-Mseitbeh. The case has raised concern of renewed sectarian tensions in Lebanon.
