Justice Minister Ashraf Rifi announced Saturday that the judiciary had begun interrogating the suspects in the bombings of Tripoli's mosques, expressing confidence in its ability to reach a just judgment on the matter.The mosques suffered extensive damage from the blasts.Before the two bombings, the northern city had experienced several years of intermittent clashes between residents of the mostly Sunni neighborhood of Bab al-Tabbaneh and those from the Alawite-majority Jabal Mohsen area. The clashes were largely put to a halt when the government and the Army adopted a wide security plan for the city earlier this year.
