SIDON, Lebanon – For the second time in a week, a group of young men has attacked a U.S. Embassy convoy with stones during a visit to a southern Lebanese city.
No one was hurt in the stone-throwing incident in the port city of Sidon, where anti-American sentiment is high.
The U.S. Embassy confirms that a delegation went to Sidon Thursday for a meeting with the internal security forces commander there and left the city safely after a meeting.
It said no further information was available.
On Saturday, a U.S. Embassy group was visiting the old part of the city of Sidon when a group of young men attacked it with stones.
(This version CORRECTS in paragraph three that it is an internal security force, not international).)
