The Lebanese Army Wednesday arrested a leading figure of an Al-Qaeda-linked group and dismantled two cars rigged with explosives in Beirut and east Lebanon, security sources said, in a major move by the military aimed at curbing the recent wave of deadly bombings linked to crisis in Syria.In East Lebanon, the Army said it also thwarted an attempt to deliver a vehicle from Syria to suicide bombers in Lebanon.Security sources in east Lebanon's Bekaa Valley said the Kia was rigged with 50 kilograms of explosives and was dismantled by military experts on the main Arsal-Labweh road.The source said Abbas' arrest would likely help security agencies curb bomb attacks and unveil the identity of the suicide car bombers in the Jan. 2 and Jan. 16 attacks in the Beirut southern suburb of Haret Hreik and Hermel respectively.
