Dearborn man arrested for killing two Irish soldiers in Lebanon 34 years ago
A 71 year-old ice cream man was arrested Tuesday at his Dearborn home on an immigration violation.
Mahmoud Bazzi is accused of the torture killings of two Irish soldiers in 1980. The soldiers were part of the UN peacekeeping mission in southern Lebanon. A third Irish soldier was shot but survived.
Bazzi moved to the United States shortly after the killings and settled in Dearborn.
Jim Schaefer has been covering this story for the Detroit Free Press. He said Bazzi entered the United States about 21 years ago on someone else’s passport. The government intends to deport Bazzi on this violation. Bazzi attempted to apply for citizenship last year.
Schaffer joined Stateside to recount the events in Lebanon that day.
