Unidentified gunmen killed four Shiites in the Bekaa region of eastern Lebanon on Sunday, a security source told AFP, as the conflict in Syria raised fresh tensions in its neighbour.
"Gunmen killed three members of the Jaafar family and a man from the Amhaz family as they were passing through the Qaa area of the Bekaa," the source said, referring to two Lebanese Shiite clans.
A fifth man was seriously wounded in the incident, he said.
"The five men were smuggling fuel when they were ambushed," the source said.
