BEIRUT, Feb 19 (Reuters) - An explosion in the southern suburbs of Beirut on Wednesday appeared to be caused by a twin bomb attack using a car and a motorcycle, security sources said.

The blast occurred near Iran's cultural centre in an area supportive of Shi'ite political and militant movement Hezbollah.
