Explosion targets US diplomatic car

A US diplomatic car was targeted by an explosion an hour ago, apparently no one in the car was killed but unfortunately innocent civilians passing by were killed!

Usually US diplomats travel in cars separated by a couple of meters so I guess another US car took the wounded out of the targeted car, left some guards around, took the plates and left. (The car was already guarded when news crews arrived and no plates were on the car.)

The LBCI reporter pointed out that no one is currently allowed to even open the car doors to preserve evidence, something we are not used to!

RIP the martyrs and hope the wounded get well soon!

2008: 2 Explosions already!!! Apparently that’s gonna be a good year!
