The Greek Orthodox and Maronite Catholic patriarchs of Lebanon have urged the international community to help resolve the abductions of two Orthodox archbishops in Syria.
"The abduction of the two archbishops is among several other kidnapping cases that we can't remain inactive about," Greek Orthodox Patriarch Youhanna Yazigi of the Levant and Antioch said at an Aug. 31 news conference.
He said that help is necessary to discover the fate of the abductees, the Lebanese news site Naharnet reports.
"We are certain the international community could resolve the case."
