Military Prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr released Thursday three suspects detained for alleged involvement in this week's suicide bombing in Shoueifat, south of Beirut. The three suspects in question are Issa Ghosn, the taxi driver who allegedly dropped the suicide bomber off moments before Monday's attack in Shoueifat, and two individuals who were passengers in Ghosn's cab at the time.Monday's attack wounded two people including the bus driver.Although Ghosn said the weapon belonged to the suicide bomber, investigators still have suspicions about the taxi driver, the source said.The suicide bomber was also killed in the attack at a gas station in the Hermel neighborhood of Zahraa, which wounded 23 others.
