BEIRUT: A suspected rocket launcher at one of Lebanon’s most popular parks turned out to be a wooden installation set up by a boy visiting the public space, security sources told The Daily Star Saturday.

The Lebanese Army scrambled to Horsh Beirut in the afternoon hours after receiving reports of the discovery of a rocket launcher in the park, the sources said.

“After combing the area for a period of 15 minutes, soldiers discovered a wooden installation set up by a boy playing in the park,” one source said.

Security forces are on high alert following a spate of recent bombings in different parts of the country.
