Head of Lebanese Forces party denies Hezbollah claim that group planned Beirut bloodshed

BEIRUT — The head of the Lebanese Forces party (LF) denied late on Friday that his group had planned the street violence in Beirut that killed seven people, and said a meeting held the day before was purely political.

Samir Geagea told the local Voice of Lebanon International in an interview the meeting discussed action options should the Iran-backed Hezbollah group succeed in efforts to remove the lead investigator handling the probe into last year’s deadly Beirut port blast.
