BEIRUT – The Lebanese army says it has arrested a man belonging to a "terrorist" organization as he was trying to flee Lebanon on a fake passport.
An army statement issued Friday said Ali Ahmad Laqqis, a Syrian national known as Abu Aisha, was a member of the al-Qaida branch in Syria known as the Nusra Front. It described him as "dangerous" and said Laqqis confessed to killing a kidnapped Lebanese soldier last year.
