    The Nabatieh shelling was inspected yesterday by members of the World Peace Committee. They were shown the main street in the town which had been struck by 175mm shells fied by Israeli gunners in the early ours of the morning. four people were inured in the attack.

    Members of the committee were shown the damage by the Member of Parliament for Nabatieh.

    A few hours later, Beirut was rocked by an explosion which ripped through the building in the capital partly occupied by the Jordanian embassy.
