A car bomb attack in Lebanon's capital, Beirut, has killed MP Gibran Tueni, a prominent anti-Syrian journalist.
The blast in Beirut's Christian-dominated suburb of Mekallis killed at least two other people and left several injured.
A bodyguard of Mr Tueni - the managing editor of the leading liberal An-Nahar newspaper - was among those hurt.
The powerful explosion set cars on fire and damaged nearby shops and buildings.
Several vehicles were blown from the road by the bomb, detonated in a parked car as Mr Tueni's convoy passed.
There have been more than a dozen blasts in Lebanon since a car bomb killed former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri in February.
The latest attack comes hours before a report on Mr Hariri's assassination is presented to the UN Security Council.
Veteran Lebanese politician Walid Jumblatt has accused Syria of being behind the rush-hour attack.
Damascus has said whoever carried out the bombing intended to smear Syria just as the UN report was released.
