BEIRUT - Security forces closed several main roads in Beirut on Friday, amid a series of arrests of terror suspects in Beirut’s Hamra.

 

The road leading to Ain al-Tineh, the neighborhood where Speaker Nabih Berri lives, was closed.

 

Security forces also closed the Bir Hassan road leading to the Kuwaiti embassy, the road leading to the UNESCO Palace, the airport road, and the road leading to the Beirut Military Hospital.

 

Earlier in the day, the Amal Movement cancelled a conference that was scheduled to be held at the UNESCO Palace following information about terror threats.
