A Hizbullah member was killed when a cluster bomb left over from last summer's war between the guerrilla group and Israel exploded, Lebanon's National News Agency said Monday.
The agency did not say where or when Mahmoud Ali Mallah, 27, was killed but reported that he died while "performing his Jihad duty." Hezbollah's Al-Manar news Web site said Mallah, who joined the group in 1998, was killed Monday but did not say where.
Mallah's death brings to at least 30 the number of people who have been killed by cluster bomb and land mine explosions in Lebanon since the 34-day war between Israel and Hizbullah ended in a UN-brokered cease-fire on Aug. 14, 2006.
