Lebanese react in wake of deadly explosion

Thursday's attack on Beirut killed six and injured scores more in what some are calling a proxy war in the Middle East.

    Investigators in southern Beirut have been combing through the blast site of Thursday's attack that killed six people and injured dozens more.

    The pro-Hezbollah area has been targeted several times over recent months.

    Some believe the explosion was a retaliation against Hezbollah, fighting alongside forces of Syria's President Bashar al-Assad. But unlike previous bombings, there have been no immediate claims of responsibility.
