BBC Online : At least three people have been killed and dozens wounded in a twin bomb attack in the south of the Lebanese capital Beirut, officials say. Security sources said it appeared that two suicide bombers using a car and a motorcycle had blown themselves up near an Iranian cultural centre. The blasts caused heavy damage to shops and buildings and set fire to vehicles. It is the latest in a series of attacks in Beirut’s southern suburbs, where Hezbollah has a strong presence. Radical Sunni militant groups have said they will continue to target the Shia Islamist movement’s strongholds until it pulls its forces out of Syria, where they are fighting on the government’s side. Iran provides significant financial and military support to both Hezbollah and President Bashar al-Assad. It denies having sent combat troops to Syria, saying they are serving only as advisers. Hezbollah’s TV station, al-Manar, reported that in Wednesday’s attack, the first bomber detonated a car laden with explosives near the Iranian cultural centre in the Bir Hassan district. Almost simultaneously, the second assailant set off a bomb hidden in his motorcycle, it added. Officials told the Associated Press that security forces in the area had suspected one of the men was about to attack and opened fire on him, apparently forcing both to detonate their bombs prematurely.
