Lebanese security officials said the explosion caused panic and massive destruction in the Hezbollah stronghold, which has a sizable Christian population in addition to Shiites. The civil war in neighboring Syria already has ignited polarizing sectarian tensions between Lebanon’s Sunnis and Shiites. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)
