Southern Lebanon is very much Hezbollah country.
The highly-organised Shia organisation garners much of its domestic support from the traditional villages in this hilly region.
It runs schools, hospitals and local politics in these parts, not to mention being famed for its military prowess.
Large posters of Hezbollah fighters killed in the 2006 conflict with Israel are scattered around the town of Nabatiya.
There are also plenty of images of Bashar al-Assad, president of neighbouring Syria and a key ally of Hezbollah in the complicated, often sectarian world of Middle Eastern politics.
