Authorities announced the arrest of four men in Beirut who they described as members of Fatah al-Islam, a radical Palestinian faction, in connection with the bombing of two minibuses in the city last month that killed three people and wounded 23. Two other members of the group were being sought in the attack, which took place on the eve of the second anniversary of the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. News reports said the men were detained after explosives were found in an apartment in the Christian neighborhood of Achrafieh. (NYT, March 14)
