Sayid went missing around the same time that some two dozen soldiers and police were seized by militants from Syria who overran the border town of Arsal for several days last month. The incursion was the most serious spillover yet of the Syrian civil war and escalated tensions in Lebanon, which is bitterly split over the conflict. (Hussein Malla / AP) Pin It
