Beirut bomb 'kills anti-Syria MP'

It looks like Syria are giving the proverbial two fingers to the UN:

A prominent anti-Syrian MP in Lebanon has been killed in a car bomb attack in the capital Beirut, say reports.

Gibran Tueni’s convoy was targeted as it travelled in the Christian-dominated eastern suburb of Mekallis.

At least two other people were killed and several injured in the powerful blast during rush hour.

The attack comes hours before a UN team investigating the murder of ex-prime minister Rafik Hariri presents its findings to the UN Security Council.
