Sidon Neighborhood Cordoned Off as Suspicious Box Found near Saniora's House

A suspicious box was found on Saturday evening near the house of former Prime Minister Fouad Saniora in the southern city of Sidon, the state-run National News Agency reported.

“The suspicious box was placed 150-200 meters away from Saniora's house in (Sidon's neighborhood of) Hilaliyeh,” the NNA detailed.

“Security forces have since cordoned off the area and closed roads leading to it.”

However, later in the evening, a military expert announced after inspecting the suspicious object that it only contained denting tools, according to the same source.
