|Thailand arrest terror suspect|
Thai authorities arrested a Lebanese-Swedish man of duel citizenship, after being warned by Israeli intelligence of a possible attack in Bangkok. Thai authorities arrested Hussein Atris, believed to be connected with Hezbollah, on 13 January.
He is alleged to be part of a cell planning an attack and was arrested at Bangkok airport attempting to leave the city. When interrogated by police Atris led police to a warehouse where they recovered 4,000 kilograms of urea fertilizer and several gallons of liquid ammonium nitrate.
