A box of chocolates containing a bomb was sent as a wedding gift to the daughter of a Lebanese general, but it was safely defused and no one was injured.

An army official told The National news agency that the explosive device that was sent on Tuesday evening had been successfully defused.

Investigations to identify the senders of the explosive are ongoing, and no group or individual has yet claimed responsibility for the incident.

According to an update on its website on Tuesday, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office advised citizens against all but essential travel to Lebanon “due to ongoing instability.”
