Lebanon Cabinet Sets Up Commission to Tackle Arms Possession

Lebanon’s cabinet agreed late yesterday to form a commission to tackle arms possession following a clash between two groups this week that killed at least three people.

“From now on, the military and security forces, the army and internal security forces, will assume the responsibility of controlling security, and will track down anyone who may provoke problems in this country, especially like the one that happened yesterday,” Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri said in a statement e-mailed late yesterday evening.
