BEIRUT: A journalist wounded in the suicide bombing that targeted Beirut’s southern suburbs last week died Monday, raising the death toll from the attack to five.

Al-Manar reporter Abbas Karnib, 52, was critically wounded in the bombing that ripped through the Haret Hreik neighborhood of the southern suburbs of Beirut on Jan 2.

Karnib worked for the Lebanese channel for more than 20 years and took on a variety of posts including as head of the station’s broadcasting department.

Karnib was married with four children, the station said, adding that he had been a former captive in Israeli prisons.

His funeral will be held Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. in Khaldeh, south of Beirut. Karnib will be laid to rest at 1:30 in the southern town of Hadatha.

More than 75 people were also wounded in the blast that targeted Haret Hreik, the third explosion to target Beirut’s southern suburbs since July 2013.
