In Beirut, Hezbollah leader Hassan Nasrallah appeared in public for the first time since the Israeli offensive in July and the 34-day conflict that followed.

Nasrallah, addressing hundreds of thousands of supporters, claimed that Hezbollah has an arsenal of more than 20,000 rockets — almost twice what American observers estimated before the war.

Melissa Block talks with journalist Leena Saidi, who was at the rally.
