Topic: U.S. says Suriname president's son wanted to host Hezbollah

By David Ingram WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A son of Suriname's president invited people he thought were from the Lebanese paramilitary group Hezbollah to set up a base in his country to attack Americans in exchange for millions of U.S. dollars, U.S. prosecutors said on Friday. Federal prosecutors who already were pursuing drug charges against Dino Bouterse, a son of Suriname President Desi Bouterse, filed the latest allegation in U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. According to a superseding indictment, U.S. authorities recorded conversations Bouterse had with unnamed people and at least one U.S. agent who posed as members of Iranian-backed Hezbollah. The U.S. indictment said Bouterse was willing to allow Hezbollah fighters to have a permanent base in Suriname and agreed to an initial payment of $2 million.
