A judicial source and Al Jadeed TV of Lebanon reported on Friday that the Christian lawmaker Samir Geagea has been indicted by a Lebanese military court over deadly confrontations in Beirut last October, a move that could exacerbate political tensions two months before an election.

A senior in Geagea’s Lebanese Forces (LF) party stated that the charge against him was political, and the inquiry into the incident had been political from the start.
