Fiji says UN negotiating demands with hostage takers


SUVA, Fiji: Fiji revealed for the first time on Tuesday the demands being made by Al-Qaeda-linked Syria rebels who took more than 40 United Nations peacekeepers hostage in the Golan Heights last week. The Pacific nation’s army chief Mosese Tikoitoga said the rebels wanted their organization, the Al-Qaeda affiliate Al-Nusra Front, to be removed from the United Nation’s list of terrorist organizations. He said they also wanted humanitarian aid sent to a small town which is an Al-Nusra stronghold just outside Damascus.
