|Officer injured in Lebanon blast |
(about 1 hour later)
An explosion in southern Lebanon has seriously wounded a senior officer in the Lebanese intelligence service.
Reports say the blast in Rmeileh, near Sidon, was caused by a car bomb and Col Samir Shehadeh was the intended target.
The incident comes amid a fragile truce between Israel and the Hezbollah militant movement after five weeks of bitter fighting in south Lebanon.
Lebanon witnessed a string of deadly bombings in 2005, mostly targeting figures in the anti-Syrian movement.
