Lebanese authorities have arrested four Palestinians outside a southern refugee camp who allegedly confessed to planning bombings inside the country, a senior security official said Monday. The men also admitted belonging to Fatah Islam, an al-Qaida inspired group holed up in a northern refugee camp that has been battling the Lebanese army since May 20, according to the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. News of the arrests, which occurred Friday near the Ein al-Hilweh camp on the outskirts of the southern city of Sidon, came a day after a Syrian Islamist warned that members of Fatah Islam were loose inside Lebanon and would soon launch attacks. Abu Jandal al-Dimashqi, the self-declared leader of Tawhid and Jihad in Syria, said in an audio tape aired Sunday that some Fatah Islam members had left the northern Nahr el-Bared camp and warned the government to expect a "black day."
