Two Held for 'Surveilling' LF Ceremony Venue
Two young men were arrested Tuesday for “surveilling” the area around a venue where the Lebanese Forces will hold an electoral ceremony on Wednesday, the National News Agency said.
“An Internal Security Forces patrol tasked with protecting the general headquarters of the LF party in Maarab arrested Lebanese young men Ali Mohammed Hassan and Hussein Abbas Yassine, who hail from the Nabatieh district town of Qsaybeh,” NNA said.
“They were detected surveilling the vicinity of the Platea theater in Keserwan's Sahel Alma area, on the eve of a major ceremony that the LF will hold at the theater to announce its candidates for the parliamentary elections in the presence of LF leader Samir Geagea,” the agency added.
“The detainees were handed over to the Jounieh police station at the request of the relevant judicial authorities as their cellphones were confiscated,” NNA said.
