BAALBEK, Lebanon: The Lebanese Army carried out several raids Friday in Baalbek, east Lebanon, in search of suspects, a security source told The Daily Star.

Backed by armored vehicles, soldiers raided Brital and the Sharawneh neighborhood to apprehend wanted individuals as part of the military's security plan in the Bekaa Valley to restore law and order.

In Brital, the Army cordoned off the village and closed off its entrances as soldiers launched their manhunt, said the source, speaking on condition of anonymity.
