Student killed in Blast in Beirut University
A student was killed and four were wounded in an explosion on a Catholic university campus in Beirut Tuesday, radio reports said, while differing on the cause.
The communist Voice of the People said a bomb went off in the engineering faculty of the Jesuit-run Saint Joseph's University at Mansurieh, east Beirut.
Another radio station, Voice of Lebanon, said a student was handling a grenade in a classroom when it exploded, killing him and wounding four other students -- BEIRUT (AFP)
