BEIRUT - A suicide bomber at a checkpoint in Lebanon appeared to have been targeting a convoy of the country's top security chief when he blew himself ופ on Friday, a security source said.

The security official, Abbas Ibrahim, passed through the checkpoint in Lebanon's Bekaa valley minutes before the bomber detonated the explosives which killed one and wounded 37.
