Unknown assailants on Saturday threw a grenade under the car of a Lebanese judge who is investigating a string of bombings that has come under the scrutiny of the international probe into the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. No casualties resulted from the blast, but there was some material damage, a security official said. The assailants appear to have thrown the hand grenade from a speeding car shortly after midnight Friday, targeting one of three cars used by Judge Salah Mokheiber that was parked in the garage of his residence in Beit Meri, a mountain town east of Beirut. The car and several others parked in the garage were damaged, said the official, speaking on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give statements to the press. No one was in the vehicles at the time of the incident.
