IRAN-SYRIA-CONFLICT-PRISONERS

Iranian women cry as they see their relative who has been held hostage, alongside 48 other Iranians, by Syrian rebels since early August 2012, as he arrives at Tehran's Mehrabad airport on January 10, 2013. The rebels agreed to swap the 48 Iranians, described by the Islamic republic as pilgrims but by the rebels and Washington as members of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards, for more than 2,000 detainees held by the Syrian regime.
