U.S. Team to Arrive in Beirut as Hezbollah Narcoterror Probe Launched

One day after the U.S. Justice Department announced the creation of a special task force to investigate what it called "narcoterrorism" by Hezbollah, at least ten members of the investigation team are set to arrive in Beirut on Saturday to launch their probe, Al-Markazia news agency reported.

The unit's mission will be to collect information on what it considers to be the drug trafficking networks that Hezbollah is benefiting from in order to fund its activities, and then submit a detailed report to the Justice Deparment.

The unit will comprise specialists on money-laundering, drug trafficking, terrorism and organized crime, the Justice Department announced on Thursday.
