Turkish Foreign Ministry said a Turkish national was among those who were abducted earlier on Wednesday by armed men affiliated with a powerful tribe in Lebanon.

The ministry identified the Turkish national as Aydin Tufan Tekin, and said "intense efforts were underway" for the man's safe release.

Lebanese Miqdad tribe has said it kidnapped more than 20 people including Syrian opposition members and fighters with the Free Syrian Army in retaliation to the arrest of one of their tribesmen by the FSA inside Syria.
