BEIRUT, September 23 (RIA Novosti) - A 17-year-old boy was killed and four people were injured when a bomb went off in a Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon's port city of Sidon on Tuesday, local media reported.

The explosive device, hidden in a motorcycle, severely damaged the al-Nour mosque located within the Ein el-Hilweh camp, and killed Ahmed Mostafa Qassem, who was walking out of the mosque at the time of the blast.

The mosque houses the office of the Islamic Movements Alliance's spokesperson, Sheikh Jamal al-Khattab.

The group and Palestinian President Mahmud Abbas's Fatah are responsible for security in the camp.
