Twin Car Bomb Blasts Kill 42 in Tripoli, Lebanon

Two car-bomb blasts in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli killed at least 42 people Friday, and the Lebanese Red Cross says more than 500 people were wounded.

One of the bombs exploded outside the Taqwa mosque as midday prayers were ending. That mosque is where Sheik Salem Rafei, a Salafi cleric opposed to Lebanon's militant Shi'ite Hezbollah group, usually prays. It was not clear whether he was inside.
