A+ A-

BEIRUT: Two people were wounded Tuesday in an armed robbery at a branch of Societe Generale de Banque au Liban in Kfar Shima, south of Beirut.

Security sources identified the wounded as Zaher Ahmad Zaidan and Maroun Jerji, both of whom were clients of the bank. They were taken to a local hospital to be treatment for gunshot wounds to the legs.

The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Daily Star that two armed men wearing motorcycle helmets walked into the bank at around 1 p.m., shooting randomly.

A few minutes later, the robbers made off with approximately $50,000 and LL40 million, the equivalent of $76,600 altogether.

They jumped onto a motorcycle they had parked outside and sped off in the direction of Hay al-Sellom in Beirut's southern suburbs, according to the sources.
