Hezbollah leader urges calm after abduction of 12 Shiites in Syria, warns against revenge
By The Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) ' The leader of Lebanon's Hezbollah militant group has appealed for calm following the abduction of 12 Lebanese Shiites in Syria.

Security officials say Syrian rebels kidnapped the men Tuesday as they returned from a religious pilgrimage. The abductions immediately sparked tensions in Lebanon. Shiites in Beirut's southern section took to the streets and burned tires in protest.

In a televised speech, Hezbollah's Sheik Hassan Nasrallah appealed for calm. He warned his followers against carrying out any revenge attacks on Syrians.
