An explosion ripped through a Shiite neighborhood in south Beirut on Tuesday targeting supporters of Lebanon’s militant Shiite Hezbollah group. Hezbollah has sent its gunmen to fight alongside Assad’s forces, providing a significant boost to the Syrian government’s overstretched military. Hezbollah’s critics say the group’s armed intervention in Syria has stoked sectarian tensions at home and needlessly dragged Lebanon into the maelstrom next door. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
