BEIRUT: The Lebanese Army apprehended two people in east Lebanon Saturday and confiscated their vehicle, which contained a number of explosive devices and detonators.
In a statement, the Army said it stopped a van in the village of Labweh in the Baalbek region driven by a Lebanese man and another man, whose nationality is unknown but resides in the country.
“The vehicle contained medium and light weaponry along with their ammunition, a remote detonator for explosives and a number of explosive devices and detonators,” the statement added.
It added that the items that were discovered were hidden under metal sheets manufactured for that purpose.
Investigations have been launched with the two men before they are handed over to the judiciary.
