Suicide bomber hits hotel near Saudi embassy in Beirut

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A suicide bomber killed himself and wounded at least four security officers at a hotel in Beirut close to the Saudi Arabian embassy on Wednesday (June 25), Lebanese security sources said. It's the third blast in Lebanon in less than a week. The bomber blew himself up when he was approached by security officers near the Duroy hotel, some 20 meters from the embassy in the seaside district of Raouche, the sources said. The embassy was not damaged by the blast. Security services arrested a second suspected Saudi militant and are pursuing a third whose nationality was not immediately known, the sources added. Lebanon has suffered a wave of sectarian violence linked to the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
