Stones greet US envoy in south Lebanon

Wednesday, Jun 18 2008 6:45 AM

Witnesses say Hezbollah's Shiite supporters have attacked a U.S. envoy's motorcade with stones in southern Lebanon, protesting her first visit to the militant group's stronghold.

Security officials and witnesses say no one was hurt in the attack but at least one of the U.S. convoy's 10 bulletproof vehicles was hit and broke down.

The attack occurred Wednesday afternoon after U.S. Charge d'Affaires Michele Sison inspected some projects financed by the U.S. government in the southern market town of Nabatiyeh.

Witnesses say about 100 Hezbollah supporters gathered outside a house where Sison was having lunch and began shouting anti-U.S. slogans. (Source)
