Jordan UN Hostages_Rich.jpg

Jordanian Foreign minister Nasser Judeh, left, and Jordanian chief of Staff, Lt. General Mishal Al Zaben, 2nd left, with some of the 21 Filipino United Nations (UN) peacekeepers at the press conference upon their arrival at Jordanian Army Headquarters in Amman Jordan Saturday March, 9, 2012. The peacekeepers had been held captive by Syrian rebels. The captive troops, all Filipinos, are from a peacekeeping mission that had monitored a cease-fire line between Israel and Syria without incident for nearly four decades. Their abduction Wednesday illustrated the sudden vulnerability of the U.N. mission amid spillover from Syria's civil war. It sent a worrisome signal to Israel, which fears lawlessness along the shared frontier if Syrian President Bashar Assad is ousted. (AP Photo/Raad Adayleh)
