CBNNews.com - TRIPOLI, Lebanon - A car bomb, detonated by remote control, killed at least five people and wounded at least 21 in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli.

The attack, which took place during morning rush hour, targeted a military bus transporting troops.

Early reports estimated the death toll between five and 10.

Lebanese Future News television showed footage of soldiers sealing off the area and cars with shattered windshields parked nearby.

Monday's attack is the second bombing in Tripoli in as many months targeting Lebanese troops.

On August 13, a roadside bomb laden with nuts and bolts killed 10 soldiers and five civilians.

Lebanon's latest bombing comes two days after an explosive-laden car blew up in a residential neighborhood in Damascus Saturday, killing 17 and injuring more than a dozen others.
