A car bomb killed at least four people Saturday at a petrol station in eastern Lebanon's town of Hermel, a stronghold of the Shiite movement Hezbollah, the interior minister said.
"At least four people were killed and more than 15 wounded, two or three of them in critical condition," Interior Minister Marwan Charbel told Hezbollah's Al-Manar television station.
"We think it is a suicide attack," he added.
The explosion, which took place around 6:00 pm (1600 GMT) after night had fallen, sparked a huge blaze that hindered the arrival of emergency services.
