Jdeidet Yabus (Syria) (AFP) - A group of nuns kidnapped by Islamist rebels in Syria were freed on Monday in a rare prisoner swap in a three-year war whose brutality was highlighted in a new Amnesty report. Jihadists seized the 13 nuns and three maids on December 3 from the Christian village of Maalula, north of Damascus, where residents still speak a version of the Aramaic language of Jesus Christ. The women, who arrived in the early hours at the government-held town of Jdeidet Yabus near the border with Lebanon, were exhausted but praised those who negotiated their release.
