Lebanon’s military prosecutor Judge Saqr Saqr charged on Tuesday eight people with forming an armed gang in the eastern Bekaa valley and plotting terrorist attacks against the army with the aim of killing soldiers, a judicial source said.

The suspects include Lebanese and Syrian citizens, the source said.

Only two of the suspects are in custody. The rest were charged in absentia. If convicted, they could face the death penalty. AFP
