Damascus, Jan 9 (Reuters) - Forty eight Iranians released by Syrian rebels in exchange for the release of more than 2,000 civilian prisoners held by the Syrian government arrived at the Sheraton hotel in central Damascus on Wednesday, a Reuters witness said.

The men were accompanied by the Iranian ambassador to Syria and arrived in six small buses, looking tired but in good health.
