Mount Lebanon college says reports of explosive device inaccurate

BEIRUT: A college in Alley, Mount Lebanon, said Sunday reports of an explosive device being found near the school were inaccurate.

“What was reported by some media of an explosive at the wall near the National University is far from accurate given that what was located fell short of being an explosive and was placed in front of the wall in a neighborhood known as the National University neighborhood,” the National University said in a statement, according to the National News Agency.

Earlier Sunday, the NNA said an improvised explosive device - two large fruit juice bottles filled with gasoline attached to a detonator – was discovered in the morning - was discovered near the university in Alley.

The school said in the statement that it was apolitical and that its doors were open to all Lebanese students without any discrimination.
