A Lebanese-Canadian man accused of stockpiling explosives in Cyprus pleaded guilty on Monday in a case that Israel said bore the hallmarks of a failed Hezbollah plot.
Cyprus's criminal court was expected to sentence Hussein Bassam Abdallah, 26, later on Monday.
He was arrested in late May after police discovered a huge quantity of ammonium nitrate fertilizer, a potential explosive, in the basement of a house in the coastal city of Larnaca.
Abdallah pleaded guilty to charges of possessing explosives, conspiracy to commit a crime, aiding and abetting armed organization and participation in an armed group.
Cyprus's foreign minister earlier this month told that the government believed it had thwarted a plot by Hezbollah hostile to Israel.Güncelleme Tarihi: 29 Haziran 2015, 15:13
