BEIRUT (Reuters) - Four people were killed in a blast in Beirut's southern suburbs on Tuesday, a security source told Reuters, attributing the blast to a suicide bomber wearing an explosive belt.

The source said another 20 people were wounded in the explosion, which occurred in a stronghold of the military and political movement Hezbollah.
