Lebanon 'arrests head of Abdullah Azzam Brigades'
« on: January 01, 2014, 05:13:19 AM »
Via the BBC:

The Lebanese authorities are reported to have arrested the head of a jihadist group behind the suicide bomb attack on the Iranian embassy in November.

Defence Minister Fayez Ghosn told the AFP news agency that Majid al-Majid, the Saudi "emir" of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, was being held by Lebanese army intelligence in Beirut.

Hezbollah's al-Manar television also said Majid had been detained recently.

The embassy attack killed 23 people, including the Iranian cultural attache.

Every time I start to feel boring, I remember there is a monthly magazine devoted to elevators.
