BEIRUT - Four people were killed in a blast in Beirut's southern suburbs on Tuesday, a security source told Reuters, attributing the blast to a suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt.
The source said another 20 people were wounded in the explosion, which occurred in a stronghold of the military and political movement Hezbollah.
Images broadcast on the Shi'ite Muslim militant movement's Al Manar channel showed flames erupting from a building and a large plume of smoke billowing over a street near the charred remains of cars as a crowd gathered at the site of the blast.
Al Manar reported that the explosion occurred in the Haret Hreik area, which was the target of a car bomb attack earlier this month that killed at least five people.
Tensions from the war in neighboring Syria have increasingly spilled over into Lebanon.

“Popcorn time”. I agree. Doesn’t get any better than Al Queda trying to kill Hezbollah and vice versa.
I wish them both luck on that score.
Maybe with a little Mossad-spread gossip about one side to the other. Much cheaper and safer than having your own people take part in the event.
bring in Hamas and make it a threesome.
Do these guys actually read what they write?
Hezbollah has been a client of the Assad Regime for decades. They've sent thousands of fighters to fight for Assad in Syria. And this is called "tensions spilling over". You lose IQ points reading this stuff.
Probably moozlums celebrating the birth of their child by blowing the family to bloody bits.
