Thailand detainee is not Hezbollah member, party official says


Ghaleb Abu Zeinab, a member of Hezbollah’s political bureau, was quoted as saying by LBC television that the man detained in Thailand for being suspected of involvement in terrorist activities “is not one of Hezbollah’s members,” However, he did not elaborate any further.

His comment comes after Thailand authorities announced that they arrested a Lebanese member of Hezbollah.

The arrest came after the U.S. ambassador to Thailand warned Friday that Americans are under the “real and very credible” threat of a terrorist attack in Bangkok, the U.S. ambassador to Thailand warned Friday,

Ambassador Kristie Kenney was elaborating on an “emergency message” sent by the embassy to American citizens earlier Friday warning of a possible terrorist attack.
