Car bomb kills four, injures more than 65 in second such incident in Lebanese capital in less than a week.

BEIRUT - A car bomb killed four people in Hezbollah's southern Beirut stronghold on Thursday, security and medical sources said, the latest in a series of deadly attacks on Shi'ite and Sunni targets in Lebanon.

Several cars were destroyed by the force of the blast, their blackened and twisted frames smouldering on the street in front of buildings whose facades were also torn off by the explosion.

Health Minister Ali Hassan Khalil said four people were killed and 66 wounded, according to preliminary figures. A security source said the blast was caused by a car bomb.
