    Lebanese soldiers and firefighters attended at least one large fire that was started by the blast. A building was badly damaged and several cars destroyed.

     

    Four explosions have struck the Beirut area since May 20, when Lebanese troops and fighters from Fatah al-Islam first started to clash in a Palestinian refugee camp, Nahr al-Bared, in north Lebanon.

     

    Lebanese security forces found three cars rigged with bombs in east Lebanon on Thursday, a day after three people possessing arms and explosives were arrested on suspicion that they were linked to al-Qaeda, Lebanese security sources said.

     

    The security forces entered the Bar Ilyas village in the Bekaa valley in east Lebanon after the suspects admitted booby-trapping the cars.
