MEXICO CITY: Three alleged members of Hezbollah have been arrested in Mexico and one was handed over to U.S. authorities, Mexican media reported Sunday.
Reforma newspaper identified one of the detainees as Rafic Mohammad Labboun Allaboun, a U.S. national, who was wanted by the U.S. government.
Allaboun was arrested in the city of Merida late Saturday as part of an operation conducted by Mexican immigration agents and local police, the report said.
Two other suspected Hezbollah members -- George Abdalah Elders and Justin Yasser Safa of Belize -- were arrested along with Allaboun, according to the paper.
