Twin Blasts Rock Lebanese Tripoli

Reports from Lebanon say there have been two explosions in the northern city of Tripoli, killing at least seven.

At least one blast was reported to be outside a mosque as Friday prayers ended. No one has yet claimed responsibility.

The blasts occur as tensions rise in Lebanon because of neighboring Syria's civil war, which has created rifts between Lebanese citizens who support the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and those who oppose it.
