At least seven people have been injured after a bomb exploded in eastern Beirut. The blast happened near an empty bus in a Christian suburb of the city. It is the fourth bomb attack in the Lebanese capital in under a month.
Meanwhile, a senior Fatah al-Islam commander is vowing to spread his militant group's fight with the Lebanese army to a second Palestinian refugee camp, in the south of the country. Earlier, two Lebanese soldiers were killed and five wounded in fighting in the camp near Sidon.
