British reporters rescued by Hizbollah

Two British journalists were in West Beirut after finishing a report for GMTV when a mob surrounded their car, stole their keys and tried to force them out for over an hour.

Hizbollah officials pulled them out and drove them to a safe house. The pair received a phone call and personal apology from Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora, before being taken to safety.
