BEIRUT (Reuters) - Islamist militants on Tuesday released three members of the Lebanese security forces they were holding in the border town of Arsal, security and militant sources told Reuters.
The release was a "goodwill gesture" to allow a group of Lebanese Sunni Muslim clerics strike a deal to end three days of fighting in the town, the militant source said.
The militants are still believed to be holding around 40 members of the security forces - both soldiers and policemen.
