Three dead near Beirut

Three people have been killed in an explosion in Jouneih in the last few minutes. No details about the cause of the blast in the city a few kilometres north of Beirut.

During the civil war, Jouneih was the playground of Lebanon's bourgeois escaping the fighting of Beirut.

It's the third act of violence in the past month, shattering fifteen years of peace.

sasa, was this blast an accident or a criminal act??

Hi Amr,

There's been no explanation yet. And if this bomb is handled with as much incompetance as the UN says the Security Services handled the Hariri bomb - don't expect an explanation!

Opposition leaders blame the Lebanese Security Services. But they havn't accused them of planting them bomb, just of not securing the area.
