In this Monday, May 28, 2012 photo, Lebanese relatives of 11 Shiite Muslim men kidnapped this week in Syria sit silently inside the office of the religious tour agency Badr al-Kubra in the Bir el-Abed district south of Beirut, Lebanon. The Lebanese men were on their way back from a pilgrimage in Iran on May 22 when armed men intercepted their buses in northern Syria and abducted them. Their kidnapping is raising fears of renewed violence taking over the streets of Beirut as the country gets increasingly sucked into the bloody conflict next door. (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein)
