Beqaa Valley car bombing: 2 of the killed were Hezbollah members
BEIRUT - Two of the three killed when a suicide car bomber struck a Hezbollah stronghold in Lebanon's Beqaa Valley on Sunday were members of the Lebanese Shi'ite Muslim militant group Hezbollah, a security source said.

 

Two radical Islamist groups with suspected ties to Sunni al Qaeda militants in Syria quickly claimed responsibility for the Nabi Osmane bombing in separate statements posted on Twitter - the Nusra Front in Lebanon and Liwa Ahrar al-Sunna in Baalbek, that has suspected links to al-Qaeda.

 

Both groups stated the bombing was revenge for the Syrian army's takeover of Yabroud, a takeover aided by Hezbollah. (Reuters)
