( dpa ) - A large bomb went off under a bridge in eastern Beirut Friday, setting cars ablaze.
The bomb went off during rush-hour in the Hazmieh district of the Lebanese capital. It was unclear who the bomb was targeted at or whether there were any casualties. Ambulances were seen rushing to the scene.
Lebanon has seen a series of car bomb attacks since 2005, including one that killed former premier Rafik Hariri.
Tensions in the country are high because of a political dispute over electing a new president.
