BEIRUT: General Security has released the photo of a terrorist it says distributed explosive belts to the would-be bombers found Wednesday night at a Beirut hotel.
In a statement late Thursday, General Security identified the suspect as Monzer al-Hasan, who hails from the northern province of Akkar.
It said Hasan, 24, also holds Swedish nationality.
The statement said Hasan drives two cars, possibly rigged with explosives. The cars were identified as an old, beige Nissan and a 2005 model silver Mercedes-Benz.
General Security said Hasan had provided the Saudi suicide bomber and his would-be bombing partner, who were staying at the Duroy Hotel in Beirut's Raouche neighborhood, with explosive belts.
