One killed in explosion in Lebanese school
font size    

A man was killed and another seriously wounded Tuesday when a leftover Israeli "suspicious object" blew up at a school in east Lebanon's ancient city of Baalbek, local NBN television reported.

Hafez Khalil Abbas, a 35-year-old bus driver at the Abbas Mussawi School in Baalbek "found the object behind the school's wall and brought it to the principal's office, where it exploded," the report said.

It added that Abbas was instantaneously killed, while the school principal suffered serious injuries.

Baalbek, a Hezbollah stronghold, was repeatedly hit by Israeli aircraft during the 34-day war on Lebanon that ended with a UN- brokered cease-fire on Aug. 14.
