BEIRUT: Lebanon has detained two airport workers over alleged contact with “terrorist parties,” the country’s ANI news agency said on Sunday. A security source confirmed that “two employees were detained,” without adding if they were employed directly by the airport or by a service provider. “One of the two was in possession of a handgun, while traces of explosives were discovered in the car of the other,” the source said, without elaborating. Transport Minister Ghazi Zoaiter said in late March that up to $1.4 million would be needed for “security measures at the airport,” but highlighted a “lack of resources.”
