      Explosion Near Iranian Embassy in Beirut

      Voice of Lebanon radio reported this morning an explosion which took place next to the Iranian Embassy in the Beirut neighborhood of Bir Hasan.

      Security forces told The Daily Star that the contents of an old shell had exploded in an empty lot next to the embassy. The explosion was set off when a Lebanese man, who had obtained permission previously from the military, started  collecting old shells, grenades and rockets from the lot.

      Although there were neither casualties nor damage, panic was caused in the Beirut neighborhood which had been the scene of the suicide attacks of just last week.
