Lebanon: UNIFIL Attacked

The UN peace keeping force in South Lebanon, UNIFIL, came under attack on Sunday. Six Spanish UN peacekeepers were killed and more were injured when a bomb exploded near their convoy. MacDara wrote that he “had intended for Sunday Nights post to be lighthearted and showing some of the good side of life that Lebanon still offers. But unfortunately Lebanon never allows the good side to dominate the news or even private life.”
