Two Italian peacekeepers were seriously wounded in an attack south of Beirut

Two 'blue helmets' Italians were seriously injured Friday in Lebanon in an attack on the armored UN in traveling with other soldiers. The explosion occurred near Sidon, 40 kilometers south of Beirut. Apparently, a device exploded as a convoy of trucks from the Italian contingent of UNIFIL. The bomb was detonated by remote control when the vehicle passed through the city stadium.

Four other Italian soldiers were wounded, reports the online edition of the Corriere della Sera. The first information, then denied, spoke of two deaths in the Italian contingent.
