Car bomb kills at least 3 in Lebanese Shiite town

Published: 02.02.14, 08:08 / Israel News

A car bomb blew up Saturday near a gas station in a Shiite town in northeast Lebanon, killing at least three people, officials said.

 

The bomb was the second to hit the stown of Hermel, in the latest attack that appeared linked to the war in neighboring Syria.

 

Lebanon's Red Crescent said three were killed and another 18 wounded. The organization initially reported that four people were killed, but later revised the number downwards.

 

Footage on al-Manar television, associated with the Shiite group Hezbollah, showed a bright orange blaze as black silhouettes of people ran by. Blasts could be heard in the background. Eyewitnesses said Lebanese security was surrounding the area and preventing people from reaching it.

 

The blast occurred near a school run by a charity group for impoverished children, some of them orphans. An official speaking on al-Manar said no children were injured. (AP)
