Six hurt in grenade attack in Beirut

Six people have been hurt in a grenade attack on a residential building near the UN headquarters.

It is the third attack on a non-political target in recent days. Until now, all violence has been aimed at politicians and journalists. Now, it's spreading. For the first time, civilians are being targeted by rival gangs.

Interior Minister Ahmed Fatfat, who has failed to bring security to Lebanon says "It is clear that there is an attempt to ignite security strife in the country."
