27 people have been killed and 352 wounded when two bombs exploded within minutes of each other outside separate mosques in Lebanon’s northern city of Tripoli on Friday, state news and private television networks reported.
One of the bombs exploded near the Taqwa mosque as worshippers spilled out of the religious center following Friday prayers. Minutes later a second explosion struck the Salam mosque in the Mina area near the waterfront.
