A suicide bomber who killed a security officer and wounded 25 people in a midnight attack in Beirut neighborhood had intended to carry out the bombing in the capital's southern suburbs, a judicial source said.The bomber's nervous behavior prompted Ali Jaber to race to the Army checkpoint to alert them while Abdul-Karim Hodroj, a General Security sergeant, stayed with the bomber to make sure he did not escape.The security sources said that Hodroj and another General Security officer, Ali Jaber, had intercepted the bomber's car after he drove the wrong way down the street.Hodroj had put his gun to the driver's head, while Jaber rushed to get help from the nearby Army checkpoint, when the bomber blew himself up.The security sources said Jaber heard the bomber speaking with a Syrian accent.
