Sixty-five Syrians were arrested Sunday as two suspected people smugglers attempted to bring them into Lebanon, the Internal Security Forces said in a statement.The arrests follow the return Saturday of 722 Syrian refugees who had been living in southern Lebanon's Shebaa and the central Bekaa, General Security said in a statement. This marked the fourth voluntary refugee return organized by General Security in coordination with the Syrian government in recent weeks, following three installments that had departed from the northeastern town of Arsal.Some 18 buses, which had been provided by the Syrian government, carried the remaining refugees, picking up from Shebaa and departing for Beit Jin in southern Syria, Zapater told The Daily Star.
