Explosion near Beirut injures 6

May 6th, 2005 · No Comments · Uncategorized

An explosion in Jouneih, 10 miles north of Beirut, has injured 6 people according to LBC, Future and the Red Cross. The cause of the explosion is unknown.

It’s the second blast to hit the elite playground of Jouneih. During the Civil War, those who could afford it came to Jouneih to carry on partying.

But this time round it seems the port city is not immune.

It happened just after 9pm.

In the weeks since the Syrian peacekeeping withdrawal armed militias have been coming on to the streets openly for the first time since the Civil War, and there have been clashes.

Warlord and pretender to the throne Michel Aoun – whose fleeing from Beirut marked the end of the Civil War – is threatening to return from exile…tomorrow. Charges against him were recently dropped.
