Tripoli, 6 June 2014:
Two car bombs exploded early this morning outside the Tripoli home of Hashim Bishr, the former . . .[restrict]head of the Supreme Security Committee (SSC). The blast damaged six properties, including his own, wrecked 13 vehicles but caused no casualties.
In the first explosion at around 4am, a neighbouring electricity sub-station was severely damaged, cutting power to the locality. Minutes later, a second, more powerful device, planted in a white pick-up, was detonated in front of Bishr’s Suq Al-Juma home. It is not known if he was in the property at the time and it has not been possible to contact him this morning. [/restrict]
