The suicide bomber died and at least two others were injured.
The BBC reported:

A car bomb has exploded near a Lebanese army checkpoint in a southern suburb of the capital, Beirut, security officials and witnesses say.

Unconfirmed reports say a suicide bomber died and at least two other people were wounded in the blast.

Lebanon has suffered a rise in sectarian tension linked to the conflict in neighbouring Syria.

Last week a policeman was killed and 30 people injured when a suicide bomber detonated his car in eastern Lebanon.

The latest explosion occurred just after midnight local time (21:00 GMT) near a checkpoint and a cafe where people had gathered to watch World Cup matches.

It comes amid mounting regional tensions over events in nearby Iraq, where the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has seized large chunks of territory in the country’s north and west.
