Lebanon's military investigative judge Monday sought the death penalty for 10 suspects tied to last year's bombings in the northern city of Tripoli, including a Syrian intelligence officer. In his indictment regarding the Aug. 23 double car bombing, Judge Riad Abu Ghayda requested the death penalty for eight Lebanese nationals as well as Syrian Intelligence officer Cpt. The judge also recommended a three-year sentence for the head of the Arab Democratic Party and former MP Ali Eid, a prominent pro-Assad figure in Tripoli, along with his driver Ahmad Ali, Samir Hammoud, and Shehada Shdoud.The indictment cites the confessions of Gharib and Houri that Syrian intelligence planned the bombings and recruited Ali, the Syrian officer, as well as Gharib and Hayyan to carry out the attacks.
