BEIRUT: The Judicial Council agreed Wednesday to set free four people detained over explosions in north Lebanon that killed a number of Lebanese Army soldiers in 2008.

Headed by Judge Jean Fahd, the Council accepted the request to release the four inmates on a LL2 million bail.

The suspects are accused of being involved in two separate attacks in Tripoli, north Lebanon, in 2008 that targeted military personnel. In one attack in June of that year, a bus bombing killed four soldiers. A car explosion in September left 18 soldiers and civilians dead.

The suspects were identified as Othman Sayyed al-Sabsabi, Razan Mufeed al-Khaled, Rasheed Ahmad al-Mustafa and Alaa Ahmad Mehrez.
