"He opened the door of his vehicle outside his home and the bomb went off", a source from Sidon said.

An official in the Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas was wounded in a auto bomb blast in the southern city of Sidon on Sunday, military and medical sources told French news agency AFP.

Conflicting reports emerged about the extent of Hamdan's injuries.

Lebanese news outlets said the blast took place as the Palestinian was getting into his booby-trapped BMW in the area of al-Boustan al-Kabir in Sidon, some 40km south of the Lebanese capital, Beirut.

Local media reported that Hamas had released a statement denying that any of its officials had been killed in the attack.

By longstanding convention, Lebanese authorities do not enter Palestinian camps, where security is instead left to joint Palestinian security forces.
