The Army dismantled an explosives-rigged vehicle on the outskirts of Arsal in east Lebanon Monday, as the military finalized preparations for a Cabinet-sanctioned security plan expected to go into effect in Tripoli this week.Tripoli gunmen and fighters went into hiding in anticipation of the government's security plan, as the military prosecutor, in an unprecedented move, issued warrants against 200 suspects, including militia leaders linked to clashes between rival neighborhoods.The Army was reticent to divulge details of the fine points of the security plan or its intended start date. The warrants indicate the government's resolve to ensure the successful implementation of the security plan and grants security agencies the right to detain suspects and refer them to the judiciary.A sheikh in Bab al-Tabbaneh confirmed to The Daily Star that the neighborhood's gunmen had gone into hiding over the weekend, expecting Army raids to confiscate weapons and arrest wanted men in the neighborhood as a part of the security plan.
