Bomb blast Kills Lebanese Army General, 3 Others
This really isn't good, as this guy was head of military operations in the army command. Can't do much for peace of mind when even a high ranking military officer can be killed.
A bomb attack killed a senior general in Lebanon's military and at least three others Wednesday in Beirut, the military and state media said, thrusting the country into further political instability as rival parties attempt to select a president.
Brig.-Gen. Francois Hajj, head of military operations in the army
command, was killed in the explosion along with his bodyguard, the
military said in a statement.
The explosion occurred at 7:10 a.m. local time (12:10 a.m. ET) in
the city's predominantly Christian suburb of Baabda as school buses and
people were setting off for work in the capital.
