  1. Suicide Bombers Strike Near the Iranian Embassy in Beirut 

    At least 23 people have died and more than 145 were injured when double bombs exploded near the embassy in the Lebanese capital. A group linked to al-Qaeda claimed responsibility by two Lebanese Sunni “heroes.” It’s already being called the worst attack in southern Beirut since the Syrian war started, and it is the first time an Iranian target was hit. Embassy guards, and at least one diplomat, are among the victims.
