ISIL Claims Responsibility for Beirut Suicide Blasts That Killed 43

HeadlineNov 13, 2015

In Lebanon, the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for one of the worst attacks to hit Beirut in years. On Thursday, at least 43 people were killed and more than 200 wounded in a double suicide attack on a civilian neighborhood in Beirut. The bombers struck during rush hour in an apparent bid to maximize the civilian death toll. The blasts are seen as an ISIL attack against the Lebanese political movement Hezbollah. We’ll have more on the Beirut bombings later in the broadcast.
