Romanian reporter Ana Maria Luca wrote on NOW Lebanon that she and her colleague Naziha Baassiri from Saida were detained by Hezbollah members in Nabi Sheet since Wednesday.
Luca claimed that she was in Baalbek area with her colleague Naziha Baassiri to cover the funeral of Ali Nassif, leader of Hezbollah, who was murdered in Syria.
Their co-workers in Beirut told them about an explosion in Nabi Sheet village at which point they rushed to the scene, she wrote.
She added that two young men dressed in civilian forced the driver to stop at the entrance of Nabi Sheet, pulled the driver out and took the car keys.
One of the young men got in the driver’s seat and drove to the near hills for about ten minutes ordering the hostages to turn off their mobiles.
When they reached an unknown spot, some people came out of a house - which the reporter assumed was a Hezbollah office, surrounded the car and tried to drag them out of the car.
The men never revealed their identities or why they took the reporters hostages.
The reported let them see her notebook and papers, and the men searched her bag asking about the reason of their presence. One of them then ordered the reporters to leave.
