Al-Qaeda group claims attack on Beirut suburb

An al-Qaeda-linked group has said it carried out a suicide car-bomb attack killing at least four people in a Beirut suburb known to be a Hezbollah stronghold.

Tuesday’s attack at 11.10am local time in Shia-dominated Haret Hreik ignited a library close to other government and residential buildings.

A group calling itself Jabhat al-Nusra in Lebanon, believed to be a branch of Syria’s al-Qaeda faction, said it carried out the attack.

It said on Twitter: “With the help of God almighty we have responded to the massacres carried out by the party of Iran [Hezbollah]… with a martyrdom operation in their backyard in the southern [Beirut] suburbs.”

It was the second attack in less than a month on the suburb.
