BEIRUT: Caretaker Interior Minister Marwan Charbel said Thursday human remains found at the blast site of the car bombing in Beirut’s southern suburbs suggests a suicide bomber may have been involved.

“The presence of human remains inside the vehicle in Haret Hreik suggests the possibility of a suicide bomber,” he told MTV television station.

“The car exploded with someone in because human remains were found but information at present cannot definitively say that the explosion was because of a suicide bomber,” he said.
