(Beirut) -- A former Prime Minister of Lebanon says the militant group Hezbollah is behind the car bomb that killed at least five people. The Al Arabiya news service reports that Saad Hariri blames Hezbollah for the explosion that killed one of his advisers, Mohammad Shattah. The bomb set cars ablaze and ripped through buildings Friday morning in downtown Beirut. Shattah was a former Lebanese ambassador to the U.S. who opposes the Syrian regime.
