UAE tells its citizens to leave Lebanon immediately: state news agency

DUBAI (Reuters) - The United Arab Emirates told its citizens on Wednesday to leave Lebanon immediately, the state news agency said, after a spate of kidnappings by gunmen belonging to a Lebanese Shi'ite clan.

"UAE foreign ministry asks citizens not to travel to Lebanon, and for those in Lebanon to leave immediately," the state news agency said in an SMS message.
