Syria arrests Lebanon's Fatah al-Islam leader

Lebanese website Naharnet said Thursday Syria has arrested suspected Lebanon's Fatah al-Islam leader Shaker al-Abssi.

It quoted what it called "reliable Syrian sources" as saying Abssi was in Syrian custody and that contacts were under way between security agencies in Damascus and Beirut to determine whether he be extradited to Lebanon or tried in Syria.

Earlier the United Arab Emirates daily al- Bayan quoted a senior official of a Palestinian faction as saying Abssi was picked up after illegally entering Syria.

Abssi fled the northern Lebanese refugee camp of Nahr al-Bared last September.
