The embassy of Iran in the city of Beirut, capital of Lebanon, has been blasted with two bombs. At least 22 are reported dead and 140 injured.
A jihadist gropu related to al-Qaeda took responsability for the act. The head of the Abdullah Azzam Brigades described it as a “double martyrdom operation carried out by two heroes from the heroic Sunnis of Lebanon”.
The reports say one of the bombs was carried by a suicide bomber and the other in a car bomb.
The iranian ambassador blamed Israel for the attack, allegations that Israel denied.
