The death penalty has been ordered against a number of suspects linked to the explosives-laden car that was discovered in al-Maamoura neighborhood in Beirut in October, reported the National News Agency on Tuesday.

It said that Military Examining Magistrate Fadi Sawan ordered the death penalty against nine suspects, two of whom are in custody.

He issued arrest warrants against them.

Search and investigate warrants were issued against four of the suspects to uncover their identity.

They were named as Abu Malek, Bilal, Abu Mohammed Amin, and Mohammed Amin.

The two detained suspects have been identified as M.N.A., who was arrested on October 28, and Mohammed Sobh Ozamir, a Turkish national who was arrested on October 25.

The suspects at large are Ahmed Abdullah al-Atrash, Sameh Mahmoud Sultan, also known as Sameh al-Breidy, Sami Ahmed al-Atrash, also known as Dadouh, Iraqi explosives expert Abdullah Mohammed al-Qalei, also known as Abu Abdullah, Mohammed Ibrahim al-Hujairi, Ibrahim Qassem al-Atrash, and Syrian Hassan Mohammed al-Maarawi.

Sawan referred the case to the permanent military court.

On October 14, a booby-trapped car containing many explosives was found in Beirut's southern suburb of al-Maamoura.

"A booby-trapped blue Grand Cherokee car was found in Beirut's al-Maamoura neighborhood," the Army Command said in a communique.

On July 9, at least 14 people were killed and 212 others wounded in a car bombing that rocked Hizbullah's stronghold in Beirut's southern suburbs.

The blast went off on the public road between the neighborhoods of Bir al-Abed and Ruwais.

I wish the swift justice that applies to HA attackers would be made to apply to everyone.

Thumb _mowaten_ 03 December 2013, 15:43

no samy, you did know the answer but you just lied.

if you had to bring up a case that is several years old, and blatantly lie about it, it really shows how weak your plea against HA is.

I am waiting for the article to come one day. "Darwinism at its finest: mowaten and southern race each other and accidentally jog off a cliff on their daily run."

You both literally fell off the stupid tree and hit every branch on the way down. I don't care that you re both allawie servants; I am appalled at the stupidity of your comments. FT isn't far off either.

Thumb _mowaten_ 03 December 2013, 17:47

keep waiting, that'll give you something to live for in your pathetic existence.

Thumb chad 03 December 2013, 19:37

Hmm... Death penalty against "suspects" as Naharnet puts it? Shouldn't a suspect be proven guilty before being sentenced? just wondering.
