“The U.S. Embassy in Lebanon restricted its staff movements and urged Americans to avoid popular areas, a day after a bomb damaged a U.S. diplomatic car and killed three people in a Christian suburb north of Beirut.

The bomb blast coincided with President George W. Bush’s weeklong tour to the Middle East and came amid political conflict in Lebanon between the U.S.-backed governing coalition and the Damascus-backed opposition.” (Reuters)
