Military Prosecutor Peter Germanos Tuesday initiated an investigation into a possible breach of Michel Aoun's security that occurred as the president prepared to leave Lebanon for New York to attend the United Nations General Assembly, a judicial source told The Daily Star.Aoun left Lebanon for New York Sunday morning, accompanied by caretaker Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil, to head the country's delegation to the 73rd session of the General Assembly.The president and his delegation usually book two planes for traveling outside the country as a security measure, an airport source previously told The Daily Star. But Sunday, when the president planned to fly to New York, the second plane was absent, which was considered a breach of the president's security.In a statement released Monday, Aoun's office said the measures taken with respect to the president's flight to New York were the same as those taken over the past 10 years.
