A prominent journalist working for an anti-Syrian television station has been seriously wounded after a bomb placed under her car exploded, Lebanese security officials say.
The officials said May Chidiac, who works for the private Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation, was inside her car when the bomb exploded on Sunday in the Christian port city of Jounieh, north of Beirut.
The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Chidiac was injured and taken to hospital.
LBC, in a news flash, said the bomb was planted under the driver's seat of Chidiac's Range Rover and exploded as soon as she started the car.
The station said Chidiac, a longtime news anchor, was in critical condition and that her arms and one of her legs were amputated.
The front part of her car was burned and the car severely damaged, LBC reported. ...
May is, for want of a better analogy, the Diane Sawyer of Lebanese television. - CD
