Families of Lebanese soldiers who were kidnapped by Islamic militants, block a main road during a protest after an al-Qaida-linked group in Syria says it has killed a kidnapped soldier Ali Bazzal, seen in poster with his daughter, in downtown Beirut, Lebanon, Saturday, Dec. 6, 2014. The Nusra Front group said it shot dead Ali Bazzal, one of the Lebanese soldiers that was kidnapped by the group on Friday night in retaliation for the Lebanese government’s detention of the wives and children of militants. The Nusra Front and the Islamic State group have been holding more than 20 Lebanese soldiers and policemen since August. They have so far killed four of them. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
