Beirut: At least four dead in bombing against U.S. embassy vehicle
A car bomb explosion targeted a U.S. embassy vehicle in Beirut's northern suburb of Dora Tuesday, killing four people and injuring at least 15, including two U.S. citizens. According to Naharnet, the fatalities were two motorists and a pedestrian, security sources said.
A source at the U.S. embassy told Naharnet the two U.S. citizens are "embassy employees, they are wounded, but in a stable condition." "The attack did not result in killing any U.S. citizen," the source said.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Sean McCormack said two embassy employees - including the driver - were in the vehicle damaged in the blast. The driver was slightly injured and the other staffer is fine, McCormack said, according to the AP. McCormack said four Lebanese were killed in the attack.
