An explosion at a school in Lebanon's eastern Beka'a Valley killed one adult and seriously wounded another Tuesday, a school official and the official news agency reported.
What caused the explosion was not immediately clear. The official National News Agency said it was a bomb, but a staffer at the Abbas Mussawi School in Ba'albek said only that an explosion occurred in a room, killing one man, Hafez Hassan, and wounding another, Fahed Yaghi.
A stronghold of the Hizbullah, Ba'albek was repeatedly hit by Israeli aircraft during the 34-day war that ended with a UN-brokered cease-fire on Aug. 14.
