UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday condemned the earlier bomb attack in southern Lebanon that killed Fatah official Kamal Medhat and several of his bodyguards. In statement from his office, Ban conveyed his condolences to the families of the victims and said he hoped "that the perpetrators of this crime will be brought to justice promptly." "Such actions must not be allowed to endanger the climate of calm that currently prevails in Lebanon," he continued.
