Lebanese authorities and Hezbollah are intensifying efforts to arrest a car theft ring that reportedly sold vehicles that were later rigged by Syrian opposition groups and detonated in Beirut's southern suburbs.The sources said that a rigged Kia Sportage which exploded in the Beirut southern suburb of Haret Hreik Tuesday was stolen by members of the ring in 2013 and sold to Syrian opposition militants.Hasan Mazloum, a local figure in Brital, told The Daily Star that he expected Tleiss and other members of the ring would not be able to remain hidden long. The sources said that the ring had sold to Syrian rebels the car that was used in a suicide bombing in Hermel last week, an attack that killed five people.Teenager Maria Jawhari, a victim of Tuesday's explosion in Haret Hreik, was laid to rest in her hometown of Hermel Wednesday.
