BEIRUT - A senior security official says a blast that ripped through a car parts shop in eastern Lebanon has killed one person and wounded two others.

The official says the explosion which occurred shortly before midnight Saturday in an industrial neighborhood of the predominantly Christian town of Zahle was most likely an attempted sabotage.

The official said Sunday the three casualties came from Majdel Anjar, a town near the Syrian border where hard-line Sunni insurgents are known to be active. The official spoke on condition of anonymity in line with military regulations. He declined to give more details.

The blast occurred few hours before a visit to Zahle by Cardinal Nasrallah Sfeir, the head of the Christian Maronite community.
