Estonians kidnapped in Lebanon appear in video

BEIRUT - Seven Estonian tourists

kidnapped in Lebanon's eastern Bekaa Valley last month have
called on the leaders of France and three Arab countries to
secure their release, according to a Youtube video.

The authenticity of the video, which appeared to have been

posted online on Tuesday, could not be verified.

One of the hostages appealed to caretaker Lebanese Prime

Minister Saad al-Hariri, Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, Jordan's
King Abdullah and French President Nicolas Sarkozy to secure
their release.
