Exclamation Lebanon: State Department Warning Update

This is one of the State Departments 6 recently updated warnings:

Quote:
Lebanon: (October 17, 2007)
This Travel Warning updates information on security threats and ongoing political tensions in Lebanon, and advises U.S. citizens of current safety and security concerns. The Department of State continues strongly to urge that Americans defer travel to Lebanon and that American citizens in Lebanon consider carefully the risks of remaining. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning issued on June 14, 2007.

The U.S. remains concerned about the threat of terrorist attacks against Western and Lebanese government interests in Lebanon. Groups such as Al-Qaeda and Jund al-Sham are present in Lebanon, and they have issued statements calling for attacks against Western interests. The Department of State also is concerned that the clashes between terrorist extremists and the Lebanese Armed Forces that occurred in the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp in northern Lebanon from May to September 2007 could occur in other camps in Lebanon. U.S. citizens who visit refugee camps in Lebanon risk becoming trapped during hostilities.

Two anti-Syria Members of Parliament were assassinated in separate car bombings in Beirut -- Walid Eido on June 13, 2007, and Antoine Ghanem on September 19, 2007. Others were killed and injured in both incidents, including innocent bystanders...
