This week's bomb fails to go off in North Lebanon

Lebanese police have prevented a bomb exploding in Sahil Alma. But it wasn't really the police who prevented it - neighbours saw two men trying to attach the device to a car.

They were targetting judge Nazim Khoury. He is leading an investigation into money-laundering at the Banque Al-Madina.

Just like in the civil war, rival gangs will use violence to get their own way. Syria has no connecton whatsoever to Banque Al-Madina - maybe now Lebanon's far-right will realise the Syrian presence actually helped them.
