Lebanese police say two men have been blown to pieces while handling explosives in a car park in Beirut.

The blast took place in the north of the city next to the commercial center in Antelias, a Christian suburb. One person was injured, and police named the two fatalities as Ihsan Dia and Hassan Nasar.

Police added the car of the son of Lebanese judge Albert Serhan was in the car park, but it is unclear if he was being targeted. His father insisted his family had nothing to do with politics, and had never been threatened.

It is also unclear if the men were holding a bomb, wearing explosive belts, attempting to defuse a device, or just right next to the car when it blew up.
