A powerful car bomb killed anti-Syrian Lebanese politician Walid Eido and nine other people June 13 in the sixth blast to strike the Beirut area in less than four weeks. The bomb, concealed in a parked vehicle, detonated as Eido’s car drove by near the seafront in the Lebanese capital. One of his sons was among the dead. At least 11 people were wounded. Eido, 64, belonged to the majority anti-Syrian parliamentary bloc of Saad al-Hariri, which controls the government. (Reuters)
