Four people were killed in an apparent suicide car bombing Tuesday in south Beirut, in the latest in a string of attacks targeting strongholds of the Lebanese Shiite movement Hezbollah.
"Four people are dead, and there are 35 injured," Red Cross communications director Ayad al-Monzer said.
The official National News Agency said the attack appeared to be a suicide bombing.
"Body parts apparently belonging to a suicide bomber were at the scene," it said.
The attack took place on a busy commercial street in the Haret Hreik neighbourhood in southern Beirut.
