An attack by a suspected suicide car bomber has reportedly killed four people in a Hezbollah stronghold in a Shia-dominated suburb of Beirut.

Flames were seen pouring from the facade of a multi-storey building, along with large plumes of smoke.

The blast, in Arid Street in the southern Haret Hreik district, left at least 20 injured, reports say.
