BEIRUT, Lebanon (CNN) -- A senior Palestinian official and three bodyguards were killed Monday when a car bomb targeting his convoy exploded in the vicinity of Mieh Miyeh Palestinian refugee camp near the southern Lebanese city of Sidon.

The Lebanese army is investigating whether Fatah official Kamal Medhat, aide to the Palestinian Authority representative in Lebanon, was killed in the refugee camp or outside. If it happened inside the camp, then the army has no jurisdiction.

There was no information on who might have been responsible.
