ICJ deplores the massacre in Lebanon

The ICJ urges the Lebanese government to take all adequate steps to ensure that the perpetrators of the Sunday massacre be brought to justice.

At least 10 worshippers were killed and over 60 others wounded, many of them children and women, during mass, when two bombs ripped through the Sayyidet el Najat (Our Lady of Salvation) church in Jounieh, northern Beirut.

The ICJ deplores this infamous massacre which may jeopardise the country’s recent return to peace after years of civil war.
