STORY: Security camera footage shows the moment when one of two bombs ripped through mosques in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli during Friday prayers.
The video, obtained by the local news channel LBC, shows worshippers seated inside the mosque as a blast ripps through a wall, showering clouds of dust onto worshsippers and sending people running out of the building.
The twin explosions in the largely Sunni Muslim city killed dozens and wounded hundreds more, intensifying a sectarian strife that has spilled over into Lebanon from the civil war in neighbouring Syria.
