Three men with purported ties to Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah have been arrested for allegedly laundering cocaine money in Miami, Florida, on behalf of Colombian drug cartels.
Mohammad Ahmad Ammar, Hassan Mohsen Mansour, and Ghassan Diab are suspected to have illegally moved over $500,000 through Miami banks in a series of complicated financial transactions.
Ammar, 31, is believed to be the leader of the group. He was living in Colombia before he was booked into Miami-Dade jail last week on state felony money laundering charges. His two associates also face similar charges in South Florida.
