Rockets strike Hezbollah’s stronghold in Beirut; 4 hurt

BEIRUT — Two rockets crashed into southern Beirut suburbs controlled by the militant group Hezbollah on Sunday, wounding four people in what appeared to be the first attack on the group’s stronghold in more than two years of sectarian tensions here over the civil war next door in Syria.

It was unclear who fired the rockets, which Lebanese authorities said came from the hills southeast of the city. Syrian rebel leaders denied involvement.
