The UN Security Council on Thursday strongly condemned the terrorist attack that killed an anti-Syrian member of Lebanon's parliament and demanded an immediate end to the targeted assassinations of Lebanese leaders. Ahead of presidential elections in the country, the council stressed that "any attempt to destabilize Lebanon, including through political assassination or other terrorist acts, should not impede or subvert the constitutional process in Lebanon." The presidential statement, read at a council meeting by the current council president, France's UN Ambassador Jean-Maurice Ripert, was a response to Wednesday's bombing death of lawmaker Antoine Ghanem in a car bombing in Beirut that also killed six other people.
