SHOT FIRED AT AIRPORT

Press photo dated 21 July, 1958 with caption that reads: “A tense moment in Lebanon soon after arrival of the U.S. Marines – who landed at the request of the (Lebanese ) President. A rifle shot was heard – everything stopped and everybody looked around (inside the airport terminal). A U.S. Marine explained he fired the shot accidentally and everything went on normally again.” Note–The man at left is most likely a U.S. Marine stationed inside the airport terminal.
