Hezbollah says Islamists most likely behind Beirut attack
BEIRUT (Reuters) - Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah said on Friday that radical Sunni Islamists were likely to have been responsible for a car bomb which killed 24 people in the Lebanese militant group's stronghold of southern Beirut.
Nasrallah said earlier attacks against the Iranian-backed Shi'ite Muslim group's Beirut base and other Shi'ite areas in Lebanon were the work of "takfiri" factions, in reference to Sunni radical groups linked to al Qaeda.
