Around twenty-eight Lebanese pilgrims whose bus was targeted by a bomb blast in Iraq returned to Beirut on Wednesday aboard an Iraqi plane, the National News Agency reported.

NNA said flight number 139 from Najaf landed at Rafik Hariri International Airport at noon carrying 145 passengers on board, including two pilgrims who were injured in Monday's bombing in Samarra, 125 kilometers north of Baghdad.

A Lebanese man, Hussein Nahle, was killed in the bombing. NNA said he was buried in Iraq.

TV footage showed hundreds of family members and friends welcoming the pilgrims at the airport. They began pushing through the crowds when they saw their loved ones, prompting security forces to restore calm and order.

The health minister's adviser, Hassan Jaafar, told LBCI's reporter at the airport that three people were injured in the blast. But only two returned on Wednesday and the third will be flown to Beirut later.

He said the health ministry will cover the expenses of their treatment.

when you travel to unsafe countries like syria or irak don t complain if such things happen... the bigots should wait till the situation is safe before doing their "pilgrimages"!

Movaten : what's this préchi-précha? Discours moralisateur, are you a queer? ;-)

The pilgrims were dumb enough not to take the plane, it's their fault. If they couldn't afford it then they should have remained in Dahyè or nabatiyè.

We were at the wrong place at the wrong time, you know when!? The day we were born Lebanese, it's a curse... And thanks to Hezbollah our passport is worthless.... The worst on earth after the Palestinian one.... Again thanks to hezbo-gangnam style.

only in your twisted and sick mind FT... better get to see a shrink you need it to deal with your paranoia...

ya FT the khafeef. A human is a human, unlike you I don't care about their sect, FYI I have a couple of cousins whom married pretty Shia girls. I wish no harm to them, not even to you UNLESS you have blood on your hands. Those pilgrims were dumb, they played with fire and got burned.... that's it. Tough luck for them and that's it.
