Blasts Kill 22 Near Iranian Embassy in Lebanon

Lebanon's health minister says two explosions near the Iranian embassy in Beirut have killed at least 22 people and wounded 146 others.

The blasts Tuesday caused extensive damage to buildings in the area, including the embassy compound.

Lebanese television broadcast images of a line of flaming and charred vehicles along with piles of debris in the street.

The site is located in a neighborhood that is a stronghold of the Lebanese militant group Hezbollah. At least two other bombing attacks have hit the area this year.

Hezbollah has been helping to fight rebels in neighboring Syria, which is one of its main backers along with Iran.
