Israeli army 'releases Hezbollah video'


Israel's president says Hezbollah has turned Lebanon into a "powder keg", after an explosion at a member of the group's house near Tyre on Monday.

Shimon Peres said the Shia Islamist group was preventing the country making peace with Israel and possibly becoming "the Switzerland of the Middle East".

Earlier, the Israeli army released video allegedly showing Hezbollah militants removing munitions from the house after the explosion.
