¬†A bomb exploded in Beirut on Tuesday night one street away from the home of an employee of an Christian TV station. (The news only reached their overseas offices last night.) Naji Daoud, from SAT-7 said: "A bomb went off just one street away from a staff member's home, injuring ten people in a shopping area. Our employee was driving home at the time but fortunately she didn't drive down the street where the bomb detonated. It was a loud explosion and we all heard it. When she got home her parents and sister were in tears, but fortunately they were not injured," Officials also recently discovered and disabled a car bomb in the Christian part of the city. Naji said: "Please pray for that this current situation will be resolved. The overall political climate in Lebanon is not good and many people are really worried about the future." Around 100 people have been killed in gun battles being waged between the Lebanese Army and the Jund al-Sham militant group. Most of the clashes have taken place near Tripoli in northern Lebanon, but recently some skirmishes have also occurred near Sidon in southern Lebanon. As the fighting as intensified and spread, concern among SAT-7's staff working just outside of Beirut has grown. The SAT-7 crews in Beirut continue to work on programmes and are busy looking at ways to expand their studio facilities so they can increase production and support the launch of the new SAT-7 KIDS channel. SAT-7 is hoping to have that channel on the air later this year. SAT-7 broadcasts a Christian satellite television service to the Middle East and North Africa on two channels ≠ SAT-7 Arabic and SAT-7 Pars. The daily, 24 hour, broadcasts provide SAT-7's audiences with an opportunity to hear a presentation of the Christian message in their own languages, without unnecessary foreign cultural or political baggage. The ten year-old ministry seeks to complement all regional public education and information channels with a balanced Christian worldview reflecting Biblical perspectives on human life and society.
