An earthquake rattled south Lebanon on Friday, causing some panic among local residents but no damage or casualties. The Lebanese Bhannes Center for Seismic and Scientific Research said the earthquake registered up to 4.3 on the Richter scale and was centered in an area around 10 miles (17 kilometers) east of the southern port city of Tyre. The earthquake caused panic among civilians in south Lebanon. Some people left their apartments and went into the streets after the jolt that started at 1104 GMT and lasted a few seconds. The quake was also felt by residents in the capital Beirut and parts of Mount Lebanon.
