Three killed as new blast rocks Beirut shopping mall

Three people were killed early Wednesday when a bomb ripped through a shopping center in the coastal night life and shopping district of Kaslik, 20 kms north of Beirut, the second explosion since the assassination last month of ex-premier Rafiq Hariri plunged Lebanon into political turmoil.

Police confirmed that the blast, which occurred near the port of Jounieh, was caused by an explosive device.

Three people were security personnel at the mall.

The blast followed an explosion in another Beirut suburb early Saturday, which injured 11 people, and seemed certain to heighten fears of a resurgence in the sectarian violence that devastated Lebanon during its 1975-1990 civil war.

Hariri's death, in a bombing widely blamed on Syrian and Lebanese agents, widened a rift between the pro-Syrian authorities and an energized opposition as Syria begins to withdraw troops from Lebanon under international pressure.

The blast occurred in the Alta Vista commercial center in Kaslik that houses shops, a night club and an amusement hall.

The force of the explosion ripped out the center, causing damage in a radius of several hundred meters, forcing false ceilings to collapse, pillars to warp and blowing out windows.

The explosive device had been placed in one of the shopping center's stairwells.

Anti-Syrian opposition deputy Fares Boueiz charged that the explosion was an attack aimed at deepening a sense of insecurity and foreboding in the country.

"They want to destabilize the country," he said of the perpetrators. "We must not fall into the trap.

"This attack is aimed at the movement for independence and sovereignty of Lebanon. It is a political message which is being sent to us,".

Another MP, Naamatallah Abi Nasr, accused "the enemies of Lebanon," adding: "I say that's enough."

It was a sentiment echoed by a shop owner in the district who said: "We want this situation to end."

Added Claude Boustani, a nearby resident: "We don't know what is happening but it's obvious that we are very frightened."
