Radical Preacher Al-Assir Tried To Flee To Nigeria

Ahmad al-Assir, a radical preacher, whose followers battled the Lebanese army before he went into hiding two years ago, tried to board a plane to Nigeria using a fake passport.

The cleric was, however, seized at Rafik Hariri International Airport in Beirut. He made an attempt to flee over the weekend.
