Blast Rocks Hezbollah Neighborhood Near Beirut

At least one dead, neighborhood has been sealed off

Lebanese officials say a blast has shaken a Hezbollah neighborhood south of Beirut, killing at least one person and seriously wounding another.

The state-run news agency said three bombs placed under the car of a Hamas official exploded Saturday in the Haret Hreik area. But Lebanese security officials told reporters the cause of the blast has not yet been determined.

The Lebanese militant group, Hezbollah, which controls the area, sealed off the streets and prevented journalists from getting close to the scene.
