Blast in Lebanon kills one and injures three

One man has died and three have been wounded in a blast in Lebanon. The explosion set off large fire in several buildings in a Christian area north of Beirut. One building has been badly damaged.

It took fire-fighters 90 minutes to put off the large fire.

This is the fifth blast rocking Beirut since May 20, when Lebanese troops and Fatah Islam militants began battling at a Palestinian refugee camp in the north of the country.

The four previous explosions killed one person and left around 40 others wounded.
