A blast destroyed a auto in the southern Lebanese city of Sidon, injuring a member of the Palestinian group Hamas, Al-Manar TV reported.

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

An AFP journalist in Sidon saw the burnt-out vehicle, a silver BMW, in a parking lot of an apartment building where Hamdan lived.

A medical source at the scene told AFP that Hamdan suffered serious wounds to his legs while opening the door to his vehicle, and was transported to hospital.

Hamdan was transferred to hospital, while security forces cordoned the area and firefighters rushed to the scene.

Hamas did not immediately issue a statement on the blast. "The incident has Israeli fingerprints", Mounir al-Maqdah, the Fatah official, told Reuters.The blast took place around noon (1000 GMT), the Lebanese army said in a statement.

Sidon is home to the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon.
