American Missionary Killed In South Lebanon

Bonnie Penner, 31, was slain at the Unity Center, which houses a Christian chapel and a clinic. She worked as a nurse.

Investigators said they believe the gunman knocked at the door of the clinic and shot Penner in the head with a 7mm pistol. A colleague found the woman's body lying in a pool of blood, police said.

The center's director, the Rev. Sami Dagher, said there were no threats before the killing and the motive was not known. The clinic provides medical care and help to local people and Palestinian refugees in a nearby camp in southern Lebanon.

Lacking any motive other than the obvious -- she was an American and a Christian.
