A suspected suicide bombing killed at least four people including a teenage girl and wounded 46 others in a southern suburb of Beirut Tuesday, a security source said, in the latest attack claimed by an anti-Hezbollah Al-Qaeda-linked group.The circumstances surrounding Tuesday's attack were unclear.The blast resulted from the detonation of three 120 and 130 millimeter mortar bombs in the vehicle estimated to weigh 15 kilograms, the Army said in a second statement, adding that an explosives belt that had not detonated was also found near human remains at the scene.Referring to a preliminary investigation, the source said a man, suspected of being involved in the attack, stepped out of a Kia Sportage moments before the blast.A high-ranking security source said later Tuesday that authorities identified two people involved in the theft of vehicles that were used in the Haret Hreik attack as well as another Kia Sportage used in last week's bombing in Hermel, northeast Lebanon.Charbel said security agencies had a list of suspected vehicles that could be used in similar attacks.
