SIDON, Lebanon — A bomb exploded Wednesday inside Israel's self-declared security zone in southern Lebanon, wounding three pro-Israeli militiamen and prompting an artillery exchange between the militia and the Lebanese army.

The bomb exploded near a South Lebanon Army armored personnel carrier on the road to the town of Jezzine. After the attack, a Lebanese army official said, the Israelis and the South Lebanon Army fired tank and mortar rounds in the area that hit Lebanese army positions in the village of Mleikh, a mile southeast of Jezzine.
