Blast rocks south Lebanon restaurant that serves liquor

An explosion Wednesday rocked the southern port city of Tyre, causing only material damage and no casualties, Lebanese police said, dpa reported.

A two-kilogram bomb made of TNT went off near the seaside Tyros restaurant, which serves liquor, the police said.

On November 16, a similar blast took place near the Queen Elissa Hotel. There were no victims in that attack and no one has claimed responsibility.

Alcohol is not banned in Lebanon, but in areas under the control of the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah and extremist radical Sunni movements liquor is not allowed.
