Dec 27 (Reuters) - An explosion that rocked Beirut on Friday targeted a convoy of former Lebanese minister Mohammed Shattah, who is also an opposition figure in the bloc of former Sunni Prime Minister Saad Hariri, security sources said.

A Reuters witness at the scene said his car was "totally destroyed, it is in a wreck."
