In the latest violence, three suicide bombers riding motorcycles blew themselves up in the center of the predominantly Christian town, a security source told AFP. One struck in front of a church and the two others in front of the municipality building, the source added.
Lebanese Red Cross chief George Kettaneh said eight people were lightly wounded in the evening bombings.
Security Forces began a comprehensive search of the entire border village, as the army’s Airborne Regiment launched raid operations in the town’s outskirts in search of the suspects.
The army brought in additional reinforcements to the village overnight to prevent further attacks from occurring, a source told the Daily Star.
Meanwhile, the funeral for those killed in the suicide attacks, scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, was postponed for security purposes.
