    (Sidon, Lebanon-AP) -- An American missionary who trained
    at Chicago's Moody Bible Institute was shot to death at the
    Lebanese clinic where she worked as a nurse.
    The incident was believed to be the first targeted killing
    of a U-S citizen in Lebanon in more than a decade.
    A gunman fired three bullets into 31-year-old Bonnie
    Penner's head yesterday morning.
    A spokeswoman at Moody says Penner studied there from 1993
    to 1996 and completed a degree in International Ministries in
    2000.
    The Lebanese center's director says there were no threats
    before the killing and the motive wasn't known.
    The clinic provides medical care and help to local people
    and Palestinian refugees in a nearby camp in southern Lebanon.
