I bet she’s got an interesting tale to tell:

(CNN) — Brazilian police said they have arrested a woman wanted for questioning in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri.
The arrest of Rana Abdel Rahim Qoleilat, a Lebanese woman, was made in Sao Paulo, authorities said. Qoleilat also is wanted in Lebanon for bank fraud, according to Joseph Sayah, the Lebanese consul in Sao Paulo.
…The Associated Press reported that Qoleilat was carrying a British passport identifying her as Rana Klailat of Northern Ireland. She allegedly offered police up to $200,000 (euro168,035) to release her and was arrested for attempted bribery, AP reports said. It was not clear if the passport was valid, according to the AP.
Qoleilat’s passport showed she had been in China, Iraq and Egypt, reported the AP, citing Sao Paulo police inspector Nicanor Nogueira Branco. Interpol asked Brazilian police on December 3 to try to find her, but no arrest warrant was issued, Branco told the AP.
