France asks Lebanon to question two suspects in 1983 bombing:


French authoritie­s have asked Lebanese prosecutor­s to detain two people suspected of involvemen­t in a 1983 bombing in Beirut that killed dozens of French troops, Lebanese judicial officials said Wednesday. It is highly unlikely that Lebanese authoritie­s will detain the suspects nearly 40 years after the attacks. Neither has ever been taken into custody. The request identified the two suspects as Yousef al-khalil and Sanaa al

Khalil and called on Lebanon’s prosecutor’s office to detain and question them, then inform French authoritie­s of the outcome.
