People extinguish fire at Palestinian refugee camp, Ein el-Hilweh, near the southern city of Sidon, Lebanon, Saturday, Aug. 6, 2011.
A bomb blast at a Palestinian refugee camp close to the southern Lebanese port city of Sidon has left at least eight people injured.

The bomb placed in a rubbish container at Ein el-Hilweh, the largest Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, exploded on Monday, a Palestinian security official told AFP.

Ein el-Hilweh is home to about 50,000 Palestinian refugees.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) says that about 425,000 Palestinian refugees are presently living in Lebanon, a country with a population of four million.

Lebanese leaders have always stressed the right of return for the Palestinian refugees, and reject any form of naturalization of the Palestinian expatriates.

The Palestinian right of return is a principled political position stating that Palestinian refugees, both first-generation refugees and their descendants, have a right to return, and a right to the property they or their forebears left or which they were forced to leave in 1948 and then 1967.
