Bomb Near Beirut Wounds Seven

  • VOA News

Another bomb has shaken a Lebanese Christian town, wounding at least seven people. It is the fourth bomb attack in or near a Christian area of Lebanon in the past two weeks. Police say the bomb exploded Friday in an underground parking garage in the resort of Broummana, in the mountains to the northeast of the Lebanese capital Beirut. Lebanese opposition leaders blamed the bombing on pro-Syrian Lebanese security agents.

Lebanon has been in political turmoil since the February assassination of popular former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. The opposition blames Syria for the killing. Friday's attack came hours after parliament announced that pro-Syrian prime minister designate Omar Karmai will continue trying to build a unity government. His allies in parliament have refused his resignation.
