BEIRUT: Lebanon Thursday sought the death penalty for a female Syrian detainee in a terror case.
A judicial source told The Daily Star that Military Investigative Judge Imad al-Zein requested the death sentence in his indictment against Samia Sh.
Samia was arrested last month during a drug bust in the northern city of Tripoli.
During interrogation, the suspect confessed that she had planned to deliver detonators to a Syrian man in Beirut.
Security forces have searched for the Syrian suspect to no avail.
Zein referred the detainee to the military court for trial after issuing an arrest warrant for her.
