ROUGH CUT - SUBTITLED (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Hundreds attend the Beirut funeral of Mustafa Badreddine, Hezbollah's top commander. The Iran-backed Lebanese group says he was killed by an Israeli attack in Syria. Badreddine is believed to have run Hezbollah's operations in the Syrian conflict, supporting President Bashar al-Assad. He was also behind attacks against Israel from Lebanon and overseas.
