Lebanese security forces have busted a number of terrorist cells in the past few days and arrested some of its members on suspicions of plotting terror acts, State Prosecutor Judge Samir Hammoud said Sunday."A number of [terrorist] cells have been discovered and some of its members have been apprehended on suspicions of involvement in security incidents," Hammoud told The Daily Star. He refused to give details on the number of these cells and those arrested and whether these cells were interrelated. Hammoud also declined to give details on the ongoing investigation with a French man arrested during a police raid at the Napoleon Hotel in Hamra earlier this month in connection to an alleged terror plot and a partner of the Saudi suicide bomber who detonated his explosives belt at the Duroy Hotel in Raouche last Wednesday, killing himself to evade arrest during a pre-emptive raid by General Security personnel. A security source told Al-Mustaqbal newspaper that Lebanese security authorities have so far seized three dangerous terrorist cells.Security concerns were raised especially after General Security released the photo of Monzer al-Hasan, a suspected terrorist who had provided the two Saudi suicide bombers with explosive belts.
