Families of Lebanese hostages in Syria have announced their intention to file a complaint against United States Senator John McCain for complicity in kidnapping.

McCain entered Syria illegally with the help of the Syrian Emergency Task Force, an NGO linked to Israel. On a photograph published by the association, the Senator can be seen posing with Mohammad Nour, spokesman for the Northern Storm Brigade, which is holding the Lebanese hostages.
