Southern Beirut bombarded again overnight


Rescue workers say more than a dozen people have died and almost 30 have been injured after an Israeli missile landed on an apartment building in southern Beirut. Rescuers dug frantically, spurred on by the hope of finding survivors. Israeli air strikes have also targeted the north-eastern city of Baalbek, as well as the ports of Tyre and Sidon.

A resident said about 50 people had been found alive under the rubble.
