Posted on March 26, 2012


BEIRUT: Security experts braced themselves Monday to open an eight-ton mystery box unearthed during excavation on the main Beirut airport highway.

Security sources said the one-meter wide, two-meter long box was taken to the Baabda Serail Monday where experts inserted a telescope into holes they created to find out what is inside.

The sources, who spoke to The Daily Star on condition of anonymity, said dozens of cubic containers were discovered in the metal box, which was locked shut.
