An Iranian diplomat says four Iranians who disappeared in Lebanon in 1982 are alive in Israel and is calling for their release. Mojtaba Ferdoussi, charge d'affaires at the Iranian Embassy in Lebanon, says all the information Iran has indicates the missing Iranians are in Israel. The Iranians were seized in Beirut in 1982 at the height of the Lebanese civil war. Tehran says they were kidnapped by right-wing Lebanese Christian militiamen who delivered them to Israel. Israel has long denied holding them. Ferdoussi spoke at a news conference in Beirut Thursday. A day earlier, Hizbullah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said Israel will provide the group with information on the fate of the four Iranians as part of a prisoner exchange.
