A suspect from the 1996 Khobar (KOE-bar) Towers bombing has been caught.
After 19 years on the run, Ahmed Ibrahim al-Mughassil (AH-med ahl-moo-GAW-sull) was arrested in Lebanon's capital on Wednesday.
That's according to a Saudi-owned paper, which says al-Mughassil planned the bombing in Tehran while he was head of the military wing of Hezbollah's Saudi Arabian offshoot.
