BEIRUT, Aug 25 (Reuters) - An Israeli drone fell in the southern suburbs of Beirut, dominated by the Iran-backed movement, and a second drone exploded near the ground before dawn on Sunday, a Hezbollah official told Reuters.

The second drone caused damage when it crashed in a neighbourhood of the Dahyeh suburbs close to Hezbollah's media centre, the official said. Residents said they had heard the sound of an explosion in the suburbs. No further information was immediately available. (Reporting by Laila Bassam Editing by Leslie Adler)
