BEIRUT: A military investigative judge Thursday indicted four Syrians for belonging to an Al-Qaeda-linked group and transporting explosives-rigged vehicles from Syria into Lebanon.
One of the four suspects is in custody after the Lebanese Army apprehended him in the outskirts of the northeastern town of Arsal last month, a judicial source told The Daily Star.
The other three remain at large.
The indictment, issued by Judge Fadi Sawwan, accused the four of belonging to Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, and of transporting booby-trapped vehicles and bombs into Lebanon with the aim of using them in the country.
They were also accused of making bombs and possessing arms.
The judge also issued arrest warrants against the remaining three suspects and referred the group to the Military court based on articles in the Penal Code that could lead to the death penalty.
