URGENT ¥¥¥ Seized UN peacekeepers being taken to Jordan: NGO

Twenty-one UN peacekeepers seized by rebels on the Syrian Golan were on their way to the border with Jordan and freedom on Saturday, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights watchdog said.

"The peacekeepers have been transferred from the (Golan) village of Jamla, where they were held, towards the Yarmuk valley on the frontier with Jordan ahead of their release," said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman, who is in contact with the abductors.
