It seems that we can't have a long break from politics.
This evening, an explosion rocked Jounieh (north of Beirut). The explosion
is said to have
occured in a compound belonging to a Christian radio station (sawt-el-ma7abba/the sound of love). The bombs may have been set off either in the offices of the station, or in St. John's, a church located in the compound. The compound is located near the local party offices of the Free Patriotic Movement who's exiled leader, and longtime anti-Syrian activist, Gen. Michael Aoun is returning tomorrow (Saturday) after an almost 15-year-long absence.
So far, 1 person was killed, and 6 were injured. However, due to the massive size of the explosion, and the fires that ensued, search efforts are still being carried out to locate victims.
Another report of an explosion in or near a cafe in Hamra (Beirut) has started circulating. No details available so far.
I will update as soon as any new information becomes available.
I wonder what it will take to rid our beatiful country of Syria's cronies and their influence. Are freedom, liberty and sovereignty too much to ask for?
