Syria's al Qaeda wing claims Lebanon attack: Twitter account

BEIRUT (Reuters) - The al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front claimed responsibility for a suicide attack in the Lebanese city of Tripoli on Saturday on a Twitter account operated by the group’s media arm.

It described the attack as a double suicide bombing that was carried out “in revenge for the Sunnis in Syria and Lebanon”.
