BEIRUT (AP) - Lebanon's state-run news agency says 14 people have been killed and over 200 wounded in a car bomb explosion that ripped through a stronghold of the militant Hezbollah group in a southern suburb of the capital Beirut.
Thursday's explosion triggered raging fires in cars and buildings, trapping dozens of people in a residential and commercial neighborhood.
The National News Agency said at least 14 people were killed and 212 wounded in the blast in the Rweiss district.
It is the second such explosion in just over a month. Last month, a powerful car bomb exploded in a neighboring suburb, wounding more than 50 people.
