Five Syrians and one Palestinian detained over Beirut bombings

 

Authorities in Lebanon have arrested six suspects in connection with the recent deadly twin bombings in central part of the capital, Beirut.

A senior security source said that the detainees include five Syrians and a Palestinian.

On Thursday, 44 people were martyred and nearly 240 others sustained injuries when two large explosions rocked a security post in Hussaineya Street in the crowded Borj al-Barajneh neighborhood of Shia majority in a southern suburb of Beirut.

The ISIS Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the bombings. In a statement posted online, the extremist group said its members exploded a bike loaded with explosives in the area and that when people gathered at the site a bomber carried out another blast among them.
