LAF finds 3 booby-trapped vehicles in E. Lebanon

Lebanese troops on Thursday discovered three vehicles rigged with explosives during a raid on a hideout in eastern Lebanon, security officials said. The two cars and a van were discovered near the town of Bar Elias in eastern Lebanon's Bekaa Valley, a day after security forces captured three foreign militants in a nearby area, the officials said. It was not immediately known if the three belonged to al-Qaida-inspired Fatah Islam.
