Bomb in Beirut - 1 killed, 11 injured

A car bomb has exploded in Ashrafiyeh, East Beirut. At least 1 person has died, 11 people are said to be injured.

It's close to Monot Street where former Communist Party leader George Hawi was killed earlier this year.

why are you calling George Hawi only a journalist, he is know for being the secretary general of the Lebanese Communist party.

Thank you, you're absolutely right. I lost the nuances in the rush to get the news out.

Hawi was not killed in Monot, but in Moussaytbeh, which is not in Achrafieh.
The bomb, although in Achrafieh, is way too far from Monot.

Unless you're trying to infer something, which is quite hard to get.

Super work performed.
