Tuesday morning’s explosion tore through the Dahiyeh neighborhood — a Hezbollah stronghold — in Beirut’s southern suburbs, leaving at least 53 injured and extensive damage in its wake. The reported 35kg bomb was planted under a car, leaving a crater in the parking lot of a grocery store.

The blast comes amid heightening sectarian tensions in Lebanon, as the spillover from the war in neighboring Syria continues to affect Lebanon. July 9, 2013.
