A group of nuns held by Syrian rebels since December has been set free. The Greek Orthodox nuns were released as part of a rare prisoner exchange deal between the rebels and Syria's government. The women, 13 nuns and three maids, reportedly appeared exhausted as they arrived in the Syrian town of Jdeidet Yabous near the Lebanese border early on Monday.
