Protest in Tripoli over detention of Nusra Front suspect
A+ A-

TRIPOLI, Lebanon: Protesters blocked Wednesday a number of roads in the northern city of Tripoli over the arrest of a man allegedly affiliated with Nusra Front.

After briefly blocking the Baddawi-Qibbeh road and Zghorta Project street, a group of young men were set to close the avenue to leading to the Abu Ali roundabout in the northern city.

The protesters used trucks, vans and tires to block the roads, security sources told The Daily Star.

Earlier this month, the Lebanese Army arrested Osama Mansour along with five others who were charged with forming an armed gang with the aim of the carrying terrorist acts in Lebanon.

The six were of Palestinian, Syrian and Lebanese nationalities and were affiliated with Nusra Front, a radical Islamist group fighting the Syrian regime and designated a terrorist group by the United States.
