Blast Injures Children of Hezbollah Supporter in Lebanon


A bomb meant for a Hezbollah supporter in southern Lebanon exploded Wednesday wounding the man's daughter and son.

Police say the bomb went off at the front entrance of Hezbollah member Mohammad Zreik's home in the town of Kfar Fila.

The blast wounded Zreik's 11-year-old daughter and five-year-old son. Police say a third person was also injured.

Officials say Zreik's children were leaving to go to school at the time of the blast.

Security forces cordoned off the area and have launched an investigation into the incident.

Kfar Fila is located in an area considered a stronghold for the Shi'ite militant group.
