Bomb destroys car in southern Lebanon, wounds one person

A vehicle blast has rocked the southern city of Sidon on Sunday, injuring one person.

Sidon is home to two of Lebanon's 12 Palestinian refugee camps. Rivalry between them over control often spills into clashes.

A military source said a BMW in the southern port city of Sidon "detonated, wounding Hamas official Mohammed Hamdan". The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

The Lebanese National News Agency reported that the silver BMW belonged to Hamdan, who went by the nom de guerre Abu Hamzah.
