(ANSAmed) – BEIRUT, JANUARY 12 – A bomb was blown up by unidentified individuals last night at a alcoholic beverages shop in southern Lebanon, the latest in a series of this sort of attack – for which no one has claimed responsibility – in an area with a Shiite Muslim-majority population. Reports were from the Lebanese news agency NNA. The explosion – which occurred in Sarafand, about 50 kilometres south of Beirut – severely damaged the shop targeted and, to a lesser degree, surrounding ones as well. However, no one was hurt. In multi-confessional Lebanon, the sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages is legal and tolerated in many areas, but not in some with a Muslim majority population. (ANSAmed).
