BEIRUT: A man died Sunday of wounds he sustained in the car bomb which killed former Minister Mohammmad Shatah earlier this week, raising the death toll to eight, the National News Agency reported.

Anwar al-Badawi will be buried Monday in the Beirut suburb of Hadath, the NNA said.

A car bomb ripped through a commercial neighborhood in Downtown Beirut, killing Shatah and seven others. The explosion also wounded 70 people.

A 16-year-old boy, Mohammad Shaar, died Saturday after being critically wounded in the explosion.

The blast seemingly targeted Shatah as he drove to a meeting for the March 14 coalition at former PM Saad Hariri's residence.

Shatah, Hariri's senior adviser, was seen as a moderate figure in the March 14 group and the Sunni community.
