We’ve been following events in Lebanon, here and here.

UN News Service reports: “Late Saturday, an explosion in Beirut killed two people and injured at least eight others. In a statement released in New York, a spokesman for Mr. Annan said the Secretary-General was “especially saddened that this latest attack, the third in Lebanon in only a week, was carried out on the eve of Easter, just as many of the nation’s Christians were preparing to attend mass.”

Urging an end to the bloodshed, the statement stressed that the Lebanese people should be allowed to decide their country’s future free of violence and intimidation.”
