Car Bomb Kills 3 in Lebanon

A car bomb has exploded in northeastern Lebanon, killing at least three people and wounding 20 others.

The blast happened Thursday near a government building in Hermel, which is a stronghold of the Shi'ite militant group Hezbollah.

The town is located just across the Syrian border from Qusair, where Hezbollah fighters helped Syrian forces reclaim control from rebels last June.

Hezbollah fighters have openly fought in Syria since last year, and there have been increased tensions between Lebanon's Shi'ite and Sunni communities as armed clashes and bombings spread into Lebanon.
