Lebanon: Hezbollah leader killed

December 5, 2013

Hezbollah says one of its top leaders has been killed near Beirut, and blames Israel, at a time of soaring tensions in Lebanon linked to the war in neighbouring Syria.

The slain leader, identified as Hassan Hawlo al-Lakiss, was the most senior figure in Hezbollah to be assassinated since Imad Mughniyeh was killed in a Damascus bombing in 2008, which the movement also accused Israel of carrying out.
