Blasts in eastern Lebanon wound woman, two soldiers
Two roadside bombs exploded Sunday at the entrance of the north-eastern Lebanese town of Hermel, injuring three people, including two soldiers, the state-run National News Agency said, dpa reported.
The first blast hit a car, injuring a woman. The second bomb exploded as the army arrived, injuring an officer and a soldier, the agency said.
Lebanese media said the military was defusing a third bomb found nearby.
The incident came two weeks after deadly clashes in southern Lebanon between troops and followers of radical Sunni Muslim cleric Ahmad al-Assir, a staunch supporter of rebels in Syria. Eighteen soldiers and 20 of al-Assir's followers were killed in two days of clashes.
