Negotiations to secure the release of Lebanese Army and police personnel held hostage by Syrian militants were on the right track the head General Security said, as the captives' relatives continued to block a main artery linking Beirut and the Bekaa Valley for the fifth straight day.Separately, General Security released a statement Monday denying rumors about an assassination attempt against Ibrahim in Tripoli, as well as other news saying the security agency had deported 10 Syrian refugees from Lebanon.The captives are among at least 30 personnel seized during clashes between the Army and militants in the border town of Arsal last August.
