Lebanese Lawyers to Request Arrest of Syrian FM


A group of Lebanese lawyers will be filing a lawsuit for the arrest and prosecution of Syrian Foreign Minister Walid al-Moallem, who is recuperating from an open heart surgery in Beirut, on charges of killing Lebanese nationals, one of the lawyers said Sunday.

"The lawsuit will be filed on Monday by a group of 13 Lebanese lawyers to ask for the arrest of the Syrian minister on charges of killing Lebanese nationals," Tareq Shandab told the Turkish Anadolu news agency. He cited fatalities in recent Syrian rocket barrages on the eastern Lebanese town of Arsal.
