The Internal Security Forces arrested two men suspected of murdering a taxi driver in the Bekaa region last week, a statement from the agency's media office said.
On June 7, the parents of Syrian national Abdullah Nouh al-Mohammad, born in 1984, filed a missing persons report at the ISF office in the town of Riyaq. They said they had lost contact with Mohammad, who worked as a taxi driver, after he left his house in Faour one morning.
The ISF found his body two days later in a house in Faour. His assailants had reportedly hit his head and then strangled him. His car, a Mercedes, was missing.

The ISF noted that Aa.J. had been arrested one week after Y.K. confessed, hours before he attempted to flee Lebanon and enter Syria.
Two other Syrians, identified as N.J. and Aa.J., born in 1973 and 1997 respectively, were also arrested for aiding the second suspect in his attempted escape.

This security incident was mapped according to the closest possible location.
