Xinhua | 2012-9-5
A woman was killed and two others wounded Tuesday in the explosion of a landmine left from the 2006 war with Israel in Lebanon's southern town of Marwahin, the National News agency reported.

The victim was identified as Nada Ghannam, 35, who discovered the landmine and was killed when handing it over to some Lebanese soldiers; a soldier and another female passerby were wounded by the blast, according to the report.

The security forces rushed to the scene, cordoned off the area and launched a probe into the incident, while the body of the victim was transferred to a nearby hospital.

The United Nations estimates that a million cluster bombs were dropped on Lebanon by Israel between July 12 and August 14, 2006 during the war with Hezbollah.

Since then, the Israeli cluster bombs and landmines in the south have killed 49 citizens and injured 407 others.
