One of the 45 Fijian peacekeepers detained by the al- Nusra Front in Syria has reassured his family that they were not roughed up during their two-week captivity.

Silomeci Taraki, 52, wife of Corporal Manasa Taraki said her husband told her that claims of them being tortured were not true.

“He told me and the rest of the family not to believe any of the stories going around that they were tortured.

He told me they were actually surprised when they heard that rumour,” Ms Taraki said.

She said her husband has advised them not to worry and to be at peace.

“He said they were well and in good health. He said they actually built up good relationships with their captors during the two weeks,” Ms Taraki said.
