BEIRUT: Twenty eight Lebanese pilgrims, including two who were wounded in a recent bus bombing attack in Iraq, returned home Wednesday.

The pilgrims returned to Lebanon in the afternoon hours via Rafik Hariri International Airport, where a welcoming party, including an Amal Movement delegation and a representative from the Health Ministry, greeted them.

Hassan Jaafar, advisor to Health Minister Ali Hasan Khalil, said the wounded, who were identified as Hasan Shahade and Ahmad Hamza, would be treated at a local hospital and that the ministry would cover all the medical costs.

Iraq's Foreign Ministry said Monday that Foreign Minister Adnan Mansour was informed by the Lebanese charge d'affaires in Baghdad that a bus carrying 29 Lebanese tourists to the holy shrines in Samarra exploded.

The statement identified the fatality as Hussein Nahle. It said two members of the group suffered minor wounds.
