Ex-Hostage Revisits Beirut On Cnn Project

Former hostage Terry Anderson said he’s enjoyed his first few days back in Beirut as a free man - and a celebrity.

Anderson, who was chief Middle East correspondent for The Associated Press when he was kidnapped by Muslim extremists in Beirut in 1985, returned to the Lebanese capital this week for the first time since his release on Dec. 4, 1991.

He’s in Beirut to film a documentary on Lebanon for CNN. The documentary will focus on the country’s recovery from the devastation of the 1975-90 civil war, and involves interviews with political and religious leaders.
