Leading Islamist Member Implicated in Murder of 4 Judges Arrested
Lebanese troops arrested a leading member of another al-Qaida-inspired group as he was trying to enter the Ain el-Hilweh refugee camp near the southern port city of Sidon, a security official said.
Sheikh Wissam Tahbish of the Jund al-Sham, who was grabbed from inside a car, is implicated in the 1999 murder of four Lebanese judges, the official said.
Several arrest warrants have been issued against Tahbish who is also wanted for his alleged involvement in terror attacks in Lebanon, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.(AP)
