At least 20 huge explosions rattled Beirut over a two minute period Sunday afternoon, and television reports said the attack was carried out by Israel warplanes. Initial reports had said Israeli warships anchored off the Lebanese coast were firing artillery into south Beirut. The attack hit the Dahiyeh suburb, a Hizbullah stronghold that has been pounded repeatedly by Israeli warplanes and ships.
