Freed Lebanese prisoners arrive at Beirut airport to official welcome

The five Lebanese prisoners freed by Israel, including murderer Samir Kuntar, have flown into Beirut airport to an official welcome by the Lebanese president and his government. President Michel Suleiman, Prime Minister Fuad Saniora and members of major political factions, including Hizbullah's rivals, were on hand to welcome them in a show of unity and opposition to Israel. The five were flown by two army helicopters from the southern Lebanese border town of Naqoura, and stood in battle fatigues on a stand as the president addressed them as "the freed heroes."
