A cluster bomb left over from last summer's war between Israel and Hizbullah group exploded Friday, killing a Lebanese man, the state-run National News Agency said. Jamal Jafal, 40, was seriously wounded when the cluster bomb exploded near his house in the southern village of Bazouriyeh, the agency said. He was rushed to a hospital in the port city of Tyre where he later died, the agency said.
