BEIRUT, May 9 (Xinhua) -- Lebanon's state security on Thursday arrested 23 Syrian nationals in Bekaa for illegal entry.

The pursued Syrians, including women and children, are living in the village of Swayri in west Bekaa, the online independent newspaper Elnashra reported.

The arrested people were transferred to the judicial bodies for further investigations.
