Diplomatic sources in Cairo have stated that an assassination attempt against Arab League Secretary Amr Moussa was thwarted, near the Lebanon-Syria border on the night of January 19.
The sources said that as Moussa returned from Damascus to Lebanon, Lebanese security forces became suspicious about a car parked on the road near the border and blew it up from a distance before the secretary's convoy reached it.
It was not reported whether it was a car bomb.
