Chief of the General Security in Lebanon, General Abbas Ibrahim , visited Holy Father  and exchanged the latest situations of Abducted Metropolitans and Nuns

The 12 nuns join two bishops and a priest who are already believed to be held by hardline rebels, deepening concerns that extremists in the opposition’s ranks are targeting Christians. Bishops Youhanna Ibrahim and Boulos Yazigi were kidnapped on April 23 in the northern Syrian province of Aleppo while they were on a humanitarian work. General Security chief Major General Abbas Ibrahim continued on his efforts to release the two bishops and nuns kidnapped.
