TERRIBLE NEWS from Lebanon:
A bomb apparently targeting U.N. peacekeepers exploded by the side of a road in southern Lebanon on Sunday, killing five Spanish troops and injuring at least three, a senior Lebanese military official said.

The senior official in Beirut said a mine may have caused the explosion, but another security official based in southern Lebanon said a bomb detonated at the side of a road about four miles north of the Israeli border town of Metulla. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Being in the army is not easy, and we can only barely imagine their sacrifices so that we can write sad posts like these freely, and so that you can read them from the comfort of your own homes.

May they rest in peace.
