More suicide bombings expected across Lebanon: security sourcesTerrorist cells are regularly making their way into Beirut, readying themselves to conduct more suicide bombings in Lebanon, security sources told The Daily Star Tuesday. According to information provided to a Lebanese security officer and relayed to The Daily Star, Nusra Front-affiliated cell members are sneaking into the heart of Beirut from the mountainous outskirts of Arsal in eastern Lebanon and are ready to undergo suicide bombings. Lebanon has been plagued by a spate of suicide bombings, most of which have targeted largely Muslim areas where Hezbollah enjoys wide support, such as Beirut's southern suburbs and Hermel in east Lebanon.Tuesday, investigative Judge Riad Abu Ghayda interrogated the Saudi would-be suicide bomber and issued an arrest warrant against him on charges of belonging to a terrorist group and planning attacks in Lebanon.Additionally, the Lebanese Army said in a statement Tuesday that troops have rounded up some 1,100 suspects from different nationalities during the month of June on a variety of charges ranging from terrorism to staying in Lebanon illegally.
