UN Condemns Explosion in southern Beirut Suburb

Beirut, Lebanon
Tuesday, 09 July 2013
The United Nations Special Coordinator for Lebanon strongly condemned the bomb blast today that targeted the southern Beirut suburb of Bir El-Abed on the eve of the Moslem holy month of Ramadan and which injured dozens of people.

The Special Coordinator conveyed his deep sympathies to those injured in the explosion and wished them a speedy recovery.

Such cowardly acts of violence aim at destabilizing the country and spreading fear among the population and are completely unacceptable. Lebanon’s leaders and political parties should rally together against such threats to their country’s security and stability and work to reinforce the role of Lebanon’s State institutions. The Special Coordinator hopes today’s incident will be thoroughly investigated and the perpetrators brought to justice as soon as possible.
