Nasrallah Emerges from Bunker, Greets Crowd, Returns

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hizbullah, emerged from his bunker and spoke briefly to a crowd gathered in a Beirut stadium in order to celebrate the release of five terrorists.

"As I said in the past, the time for defeats is over and it is time for victories," Nasrallah said. "The people, the homeland and the land gave the world a clear picture today," he said.

He then left the stadium hurriedly, surrounded by bodyguards.
