Syria: Most of a group of 300 cement workers kidnapped from the Al-Badiyeh Cement Company have been released. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said that all the workers had been released with the exception of 30 guards at the plant. The Islamic State-affiliated Aamaq news agency added that the majority of the workers were released after questioning about their religious and political backgrounds. It said that four workers who belonged to the Druse community were killed and 20 other pro-government gunmen were still being held.
