A Turkish businessman kidnapped in Beirut last month arrived in Turkey Wednesday (September 12th) after he was freed, the Anatolia news agency reported.

Last month, Al-Meqdad clan abducted Aydin Tufan Tekin, along with 20 Syrians in southern Beirut. He was the last in the group to be released.

Turkey advised its nationals to avoid non-essential travel to Lebanon after mass kidnappings, which included two Turkish citizens.
