Lebanese security sources reported on Tuesday that a Lebanese
construction worker, was killed and his relative was injured when an
Israeli cluster bomb exploded as they were working at a construction
site in Kafir Tibneet, near Al Nabatiyya city.

The officials were speaking on condition of anonymity since they were not allowed to talk to the press.

The man Hassan Mohammad Shihadeh, 40, was killed; his nephew Ahmad Shihadeh, 21, was injured and was rushed by medics to a local hospital.

So far, it is not clear weather the two stepped on the bomb or what caused it to explode.

During the July-August war between Israel and the Lebanon-based Hezbollah party, Israel dropped 4 million cluster bombs on Lebanon.

According to United Nations ordnance clearing experts, 1 million cluster bombs continue to threaten the Lebanese civilians since they failed to explode after launch.  

Lebanese sources reported that at least 25 residents were killed by cluster bombs since the war ended on August 14.
