At least 20 people are reported dead after a deadly car bomb attack in the Lebanese capital Beirut.

The blast happened in a southern stronghold of Lebanon’s Hezbollah militant group.

Cars were engulfed in flames and buildings were badly damaged. Emergency services raced to rescue those trapped in the debris.

A Sunni Islamist group – calling itself the ‘Brigades of Aisha’ – claimed responsibility for the attack, and threatened further action.

The blast, the latest in a spate of violence, comes amid sectarian tensions over the intervention of Shiite Muslim Hezbollah against Sunni rebels in the conflict in Syria.

  1. wasn't the big Naz scolding Al Qaeda for falling into a trap in Syria. Now who is falling into the trap? You go big Naz! Ruin the real estate market in Lebanon! The world is full of investors who will buy your bombed out buildings, just as soon as you prep 'em for a bargain price!
