4 hurt in attack on Lebanese minister's convoy
The state-run Lebanese news agency says armed protesters have attacked the convoy of a Cabinet minister in north Lebanon, wounding four people.


The National News Agency says protesters demanding the release of Islamist prisoners in the city of Tripoli threw a grenade at the convoy of Sports and Youth Minister Faisal Karameh that set fire to one of the vehicles. The minister was not hurt and it was not immediately clear whether the attack was meant to target Karameh, a pro-Syrian cabinet minister. (AP)
