Salam calls for blocking
road for security abusers

BEIRUT - Prime Minister Tammam Salam called for blocking the road for those who abuse the country’s security and for the attempts to plant the seeds of sedition between the Lebanese.

 

“The bombing is a clear attempt to tamper with Lebanon’s stability and its national unity…through importing sectarian strife taking place in the region,” Salam stressed in a statement issued Tuesday.

 

The premier also said that “the Lebanese parties are asked to rise to the occasion of the current phase and…Lebanon must be fortified through political steps, the first of which is the activation of constitutional institutions and allowing them to do their jobs.”

 

A suicide car bombing in a southern Beirut suburb overnight left a General Security member dead and 12 people injured.

 

The explosion happened around midnight local time on Tuesday near an army checkpoint and a cafe where football fans were watching a World Cup match.

The Lebanese parties are asked to rise to the occasion of the current phase.
