An arms depot belonging to Hezbollah has exploded in southern Lebanon, according to a security source.
Several people are reportedly injured after the blast.
The explosion on Tuesday rocked a village in the country’s south, an area which is a Hezbollah stronghold.
The blast was caused by a “technical error”, according to the security source.
Another security source said Hezbollah, an armed and politically powerful Shi’ite Muslim group which is backed by Iran, had set up a security cordon around the blast site, which sits about 50km south of Beirut.
