A suspected suicide car bombing killed five people and wounded 42 others in a bustling neighborhood in the northeastern town of Hermel Thursday, a security source told The Daily Star.The blast occurred during the morning rush hour near the town's government building as people made their way to work in a residential and commercial neighborhood in Hermel, a town near the northern border with Syria and where Hezbollah enjoys broad support. Nusra Front in Lebanon claimed responsibility for what it said was a suicide car bombing in Hermel, saying the attack was in retaliation to Hezbollah's involvement in Syria.The security source said the remains of a man were pulled out from the car used in the 9 a.m. explosion, suggesting the attack was likely the work of a suicide bomber.
