      Syrian Rebels Claim Bombing against Hezbollah


      Sydney Morning Herald reports a Syrian rebel group aligned with al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing that killed four people in a Hezbollah-controlled suburb of Beirut on Tuesday, just days after Hezbollah was accused of shelling a pro-rebel town in eastern Lebanon.

      Jabhat al-Nusra claimed the apparent suicide bombing on a street in the predominately Shiite neighbourhood of Haret Hreik, says Sydney Morning Herald, just steps from the scene of a similar bombing on January 2 that killed five. Al-Nusra said the attack was revenge for Friday's rocket attack on the Syrian rebel stronghold of Arsal, Lebanon.
