Another Hezbollah Leader Killed

By Compiled From Wire Services

A local leader of the Hezbollah guerrillas fighting to drive Israel from southern Lebanon was killed Friday when his booby-trapped car exploded, security sources said.

There was no claim of responsibility for the explosion, which occurred six miles north of the enclave Israel occupies in southern Lebanon.

Israeli forces have been accused in the past of ambushing and killing leaders of the Muslim fundamentalist group.

Ali Asaad, 37, was killed south of Tyre as he started his car, security sources said.
