Bombs target booze

Zahi Zeidan, owner of Nocean restaurant in Tyre, Lebanon, says he will reopen after his business was bombed "because we serve alcohol." Four bombings in recent months have targeted liquor stores and restaurants in the port city, where much of the population shuns alcohol, which is forbidden in Islam. The country as a whole is the most tolerant in the Arab world. Beirut, the capital, is well-known for its bars and clubs frequented by locals and foreign tourists. (Associated Press)
