BEIRUT: Former Finance Minister Mohammad Shatah, a senior aide to former PM Saad Hariri, was killed along with four other people in a car bomb in Downtown Beirut Friday, a security source told The Daily Star.

Fifteen people were wounded in the explosion which targeted Shatah’s motorcade as it drove in the capital’s central district.

Ambulances and Civil Defense teams rushed to the scene of the explosion between Starco building and Monroe Hotel, a security source told The Daily Star.

The explosion coincided with a March 14 coalition meeting which was expected to take place at former Prime Minister Saad Hariri's residence.
