BEIRUT (AP) — Lebanese security officials said a grenade attack on a coffee shop in the northern city of Tripoli has wounded four people.
The officials said it was not immediately clear if the attack was related to the holy month of Ramadan, when observant Muslims abstain from eating or drinking from dawn to dusk. Islamic groups are known to operate in the city.
The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity in line with regulations, said the two attackers were on a motorcycle when one of them threw a grenade. The two then fled the scene.
During Ramadan in Lebanon, it is normal to see people eating and drinking in public during the day.
