Lebanese police foiled an attack on the U.S. Embassy Dec. 10 when they arrested two men with a bomb at the embassy gates, then arrested the alleged ringleader two days later. Both incidents occurred a few days after the U.S. State Department warned Americans of security dangers in Lebanon and urged them to keep a low profile and to vary times and routes of travel. Some 35 people have been indicted for bombing U.S. and British targets between May 2002 and April 2003, and Middle East tensions and the situation in Iraq have produced anti-U.S. sentiment and protests.
