He was apparently referring to the return of Lebanon’s most prominent anti-Syrian politician, Michel Aoun, from 14 years’ exile in France and Parliament’s expected discussion of a divisive election law…
Police officials estimated the Jounieh bomb comprised 25 kilograms (55 pounds) and was placed in a suitcase under a car on the street.
The explosion broke a lull of several weeks following a spate of bombings of commercial areas in Christian districts and strongholds of opponents of Syria’s influence here. Bombings in March and early April killed three people and injured 24.
