A Lebanese man was killed when a passenger bus carrying 29 Lebanese pilgrims was targeted by a bomb blast in Iraq, the National News Agency reported on Monday.

NNA said the Lebanese Charge d'Affaires in Baghdad, Huzaa Sharif, informed Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour that Hussein Nahle was killed and two others suffered minor injuries in the explosion that took place in the city of Samarra, 125 kilometers north of Baghdad.

The remaining passengers on the bus were not harmed, the agency added.

Media reports said the pilgrims are from Ali Qobaissi pilgrimage organization.

Monday was the second day of deadly violence in Iraq ahead of the first anniversary of the withdrawal of U.S. forces. A series of attacks targeting both Iraqi security forces and civilians killed 32 people a day after 19 people died in a string of attacks.

In May, three Lebanese pilgrims were killed when a roadside bomb exploded near their bus in Ramadi.

Why is everyone a wahhabi to you? The majority of the people on naharnet are maronites, not wahhabis.

Your basicly insulting Muslims with the same line enemies of Islam use when they want to insult muslims. And then you accuse others of being secterian?

Well two can play that game. Show me where in the quran, pilgrimage in karbala is mentioned?? There is only one pilgrimage in islam and it is to be made in arabia, not in iraq. So you too enjoy hell with the wahhabis, both of you have introduced lies in the name of islam.
By the way, will the sadr and badr shiite terrorist militias of iraq get 72 virgins as well after they slaughtered muslims and christians in the name of shiism?

Geez some people are heartless!!! Would this reaction be the same if this happened to Sunni's in Saudi? Or Catholics in Rome? Or Fatima? Etc May they rest in peace. Only a coward/lowlife will detonate a bomb targeting innocent civilians, that coward will rot in hell!!
