Former Information Minister Michel Samaha Tuesday sought to downplay the magnitude of a bomb plot he's on trial for, saying the areas set to be targeted were "remote".When asked to name the type of explosives that were being moved from Syria, Samaha said he was "not an explosives expert".The NNA said that Lattouf announced at the beginning of the session that the Military Tribunal's medical team performed a general check-up on Samaha and concluded that there was no health obstacle to his hearing.Samaha, a key ally of Syrian President Bashar Assad, was released by the Military Court of Cassation on a nearly $100,000 bail last month despite having been convicted of a terror plot to destabilize the country last year.
