An Indian citizen was killed and three wounded when an Israeli bomb hit the glass factory they were working in, official sources said in New Delhi on Friday.
The deceased has been identified as Devesh Kumar Swain from Orissa. Three others who were injured have been identified as Kalpanath Singh Yadav, S K Virdi and Dilip Kumar Manna. The four were workers of Maliban glass factory based in Beca, Lebanon.
Swain had gone missing about three days ago along with three others who were later found injured in a hospital, the sources said.
Yadav, who had received minor injuries, was evacuated on Thursday. The other two are still undergoing treatment and are likely to be discharged in about three days, they said.
The factory had been shut down temporarily a week ago in view of the war-like situation. Workers were being evacuated when the incident took place.
