Violence erupts yet again in Beirut as a bomb explodes at a seafront amusement park.
An explosion rocked Beirut's seafront corniche on Wednesday, killing at least four people near a military beach club, security sources said.
They said several people were wounded in the blast which tore through a street near an amusement park and the Bain Militaire sporting club. Television pictures showed a car ablaze and shattered windows of a nearby restaurant.
The explosion was the latest in a series of recent bombings in Lebanon, where the army is battling Islamist militants at a Palestinian refugee camp in the north of the country.
