Several dead after car bomb hits southern Beirut

BEIRUT (Reuters) - Several people were killed or wounded when a car bomb hit Beirut's southern suburbs on Tuesday, a stronghold for the Lebanese Shi'ite Hezbollah militant group that has been fighting in Syria's civil war, medics said.

Tensions in Lebanon have been high following the intervention of Hezbollah in support of President Bashar al-Assad, whose forces are fighting a two-year revolt led by Syria's Sunni Muslim majority.
