BEIRUT, Feb 1 (Reuters) - At least two people were killed and six others wounded when a suicide car bomb exploded on Saturday in a Hezbollah stronghold on Lebanon's northern border with Syria, a security source said.

The blast, near a school and a building housing a charity connected to a prominent Shi'ite cleric, was the second explosion in the town of Hermel in less than three weeks. (Reporting By Stephen Kalin; Editing by Kevin Liffey)
