February 9, 2011 10:17

Hizbullah Wednesday morning said that one of its senior members who escaped from an Egyptian prison during the unrest surrounding anti-government protests in that country was still in Egypt, contrary to a Reuters report that he had arrived in Lebanon, according to London-based A-Sharq Al-Awsat Arabic language newspaper.

Hizbullah said that it would have properly welcomed Sami Chehab, who was arrested last year for allegedly plotting to attack targets in Egypt, if he had arrived in Lebanon.
