BEIRUT: Security forces Friday detained the wife of a terror suspect after confiscating three explosive belts from their house in north Lebanon, a security source told The Daily Star.
Interrogation with the suspect, identified by his last name Awad and held on terror charges, prompted security forces to raid his home in the village of Ayrouneye. There they discovered the explosive belts stashed in a closet, the source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said.
Security personnel also apprehended his wife, Nabila Awad.
Media reports had originally reported that the woman was arrested wearing an explosive belt.
