Car bomb kills five in Hezbollah Beirut bastion: ministry

BEIRUT: A large car bomb killed five people and wounded at least 20 in a Hezbollah bastion in south Beirut on Thursday, a health ministry source told AFP.
According to an initial toll, five people have been killed and more than 20 injured, the source said on condition of anonymity. Hezbollahs Al-Manar television said: The terrorist explosion targeted a densely populated residential area, just 150 to 200 meters (yards) away from Hezbollahs political bureau.
The official National News Agency reported that the explosion was caused by an explosives-packed four-wheel-drive vehicle in the Haret Hreik neighborhood.
The district is a symbolic one for Hezbollah, which once based many of its leadership institutions in the area. Much of the neighborhood was reduced to rubble during the massive Israeli air bombing that accompanied its 2006 war with Hezbollah, but it has since been rebuilt.
