UN Peacekeepers Seized by Syrian Rebels

Twenty-one members of a UN peacekeeping force have been taken at gunpoint.

They are part of the UN force which monitors the cease fire between Israel and Syria, just east of the Golan Heights.

While they were on a routine supply mission, at least thirty armed people came at them and forced their surrender.

There are no reports of shots being fired.

The UN quickly condemned the actions against their soldiers.

It is believed that their captors are Syrian rebels.
