The Lebanese Army dismantled Sunday a rigged car laden with around 240 kilograms of explosives, the largest bomb seized by the military since the start of the recent wave of bombings in Lebanon.The explosives were scattered in all parts of the car and linked to a 200-meter fuse with a remote-control detonator and a timer, the Army said."We are 100 percent sure that the car came from Syria," an Army source told The Daily Star. He added that the driver of the car had fled to Syria.The second car, seized by the Lebanese Army on the main Arsal-Labweh road, was rigged with 50 kilograms of explosives. The Kia had come from the rebel-held Syrian city of Yabroud and was destined for Beirut, the Army said.
