At Least 23 Killed By Blasts at Iranian Embassy in Beirut

(Reuters) - Two explosions, at least one caused by a suicide bomber, rocked Iran's embassy in Lebanon on Tuesday, killing at least 23 people, including an Iranian cultural attaché, and hurling bodies, cars and debris across the street.

A Lebanese-based al Qaeda-linked group known as the Abdullah Azzam Brigades claimed responsibility for what it described as a double suicide attack on the Iranian mission in southern Beirut.

    "Hezbollah official Ali Ammar said the attack would not deter the group, known by its supporters as the "resistance".

    "Whoever did this is a monstrous terrorist," he said. "The resistance message is that it will continue. It will continue in all its efforts to defeat Israel and defeat the terrorists.""

    Hezbollah vs Al Qaeda. Brilliant.
