Massive Bomb Explodes in Beirut

A massive bomb exploded in a street in central Beirut during rush hour on Friday, killing at least 2 and wounding 15. It isn’t clear whether the bomb was intended to target any specific person, but the event occurred at a time of heightened tension between Lebanese citizens on opposite sides of the conflict in neighboring Syria. The last bombing in Beirut was in 2008.
