  • Description

    A bomb exploded near the palace of President Chemoun of the Lebanon on Saturday.

    The bomb explosion was the latest incident in the Lebanon's troubled capital of Beirut where troops and tanks maintain permanent patrol against a possible uprising by elements of the civilian population.

    The bomb, a time-bomb, blew up - before time it was thought - beneath a milkvan. The van was blown to pieces and there was some damage to nearby shops and houses.

    These pictures taken minutes after the explosion show bystanders and police questioning witnesses.. Nobody was hurt.
