Iranian news agency: Syria arrests Saudi official tied to Mughniyeh death

Syria has arrested a Saudi official in connection with the assassination of top Hizbullah commander Imad Mughniyeh, Iran's semi-official Fars news agency reported Tuesday. The agency quoted an Iranian source as saying a high-ranking defense official in Saudi Arabia's embassy in Damascus was arrested by Syrian security forces. The Saudi official, he said, was connected to a Syrian woman on whose name were registered the two explosives-laden cars used to kill Mughniyeh.
