A group of about 50 demonstrators picketed the embassy of Qatar, which backs Syria's anti-regime rebels. The abductions of 11 Lebanese Shiite pilgrims were claimed by Abu Ibrahim, a strongman in rebel territory in northern Syria that claims affiliation to the main rebel FSA. The placard reads in arabic: 'Iran frees its prisoners, congratulations. When does Lebanon free its prisoners?' AFP PHOTO/ANWAR AMRO (Photo credit should read ANWAR AMRO/AFP/Getty Images)
