Terry Waite meets Hezbollah leaders for 'reconciliation'

Terry Waite has met with Hezbollah leaders for a 'reconciliation with the organisation that was responsible for his kidnapping 25 years ago.

Last week, Mr Waite returned to Lebanon, a quarter of a century after he was seized in 1987 and held for almost five years.

While in captivity he was chained to a radiator, regularly beaten and subjected to a mock execution.

In a secretly arranged rendezvous in a Hezbollah stronghold in southern Beirut, Mr Waite held two-hour talks with Ammar Moussawi, one of the groups most senior figures, the Sunday Telegraph reports.
