Suicide bomber kills two Lebanese soldiers: security sources
A suicide bomber killed two Lebanese soldiers with a car bomb near an army checkpoint in a Hezbollah stronghold in northeast Lebanon on Saturday, security sources said. The latest bombing, in a country destabilized by the civil war in neighboring Syria, was the third such attack in recent weeks in Hermel, a predominantly Shi'ite Muslim area near the border with Syria. It followed a suicide attack in Beirut on Wednesday targeting the Iranian cultural centre. A radical Sunni group, the Abdullah Azzam Brigades, said it had carried out that bombing, which killed eight people, as a reprisal for the military involvement of Hezbollah and Iran in the Syrian war.
