Military experts dismantled a rigged vehicle in the Beirut southern suburb Monday, the Army said.

Earlier, a high-ranking security source told The Daily Star that a car suspected of carrying explosives in the Maamoura neighborhood had been discovered.

“One of the sniffer dogs stopped at a vehicle, a Grand Cherokee, and this was an indicator that it contained explosives,” the source said.

The Army cordoned off the area near Maamoura as Hezbollah members were seen on the ground, blocking several roads leading to the site of the suspected bomb.
